Man United’s Fernandes vowed to bounce back after a penalty miss.



Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was disappointed to lose his stoppage time penalty in Saturday’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Aston Villa, but Portugal International have vowed to make a strong comeback.

Courtney Hose’s 88th-minute header gave Villa the lead but the defender’s handball gave United a chance to steal a point, with only Fernandes blowing the ball over the bar.

Fernandez, who was United’s top scorer last season, missed his second spot-kick for the club as the league team’s unbeaten start came to an end.

“No one is more frustrated and disappointed than me with the loss of a sentence and the consequent defeat,” Fernandez said on Instagram.

“Criticism and dissent are a big part of football. I’ve learned to live with it, even use it to run me, and I consider it a very important part of my commitment to Never give up trying to improve.

“I will come back strong for myself, because these are the standards I set for myself, but most of all for my teammates and our fans who have always supported us.”

After Saturday’s surprise defeat, United finished fourth in the standings, with all 13 points on all four sides.

United will next face Villarreal in the Champions League group stage match at Old Trafford.
