Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Bruno Fernandes was a better penalty taker than he was as a player.
Fernandes scored yet another penalty this season as United defeated FC Copenhagen to reach the semi-final of the UEFA Europa League.
Speaking at a press conference after the game, Solskjaer said, manutd.com reports: “He knows that keepers will wait for him to do the jump. He practises both of them and he practises both sides. He’s got them sorted better that I did.”
United have had a whopping 21 penalties this season, with Fernandes taking seven of them.
Solskjaer’s men will face the winner of tommorow’s quarter-final clash between Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers and Spanish La Liga Sevilla.
The Old Trafford side were not great against Copenhagen, and will need to improve in the semi-final in order to have a higher chance of progressing to the final.
