Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has come out to say that he would readily swap individual recognition for collective honours. He recently revealed that Manchester United winning trophies is definitely the most important thing.
According to him, it is definitely good for a player to be recognized individually, but he prefers to win such awards after a collective victory
Bruno added that he is also focused on helping his team-mates become the player of the season.
His words, “If we win trophies, it is the most important thing.”
“Of course, it’s good for a player to win individual awards and I will never say I don’t want to be the best player in the league or I don’t want to be the PFA Player of the Season. I want to be [that] but I want to be [that] if the team wins trophies. If the team does win trophies, for me, it’s the same.”
“For me, the most important thing is to help my team-mates to also be player of the season. That’s the most important thing because, if someone from the club is player of the season, it means that we do very, very well this season.”
“I think we will always be happy if someone else takes an individual award because it means the team is doing well. Nobody in football, a team sport, wins an individual trophy just doing well himself. You have to do well but you have to have the help of your team-mates to do well.”
“When you have an individual trophy, of course, you are doing really well and deserve the credit but that credit goes to the team because they help you do better and better.”
