“I’ve alw’ays assu’med my respo’nsibilities and I’ve alw’ays embrace’d them un’der pressure in mome’nts like this. Tod’ay, I failed. But I took a step forw’ard and faced the challenge with the same ambition and respon’sibility as when, on the many other occasion’s, the ball’ ended up in the net.’


“Criticis’m and contra’sting opinio’ns are a big part of footb’all. I’ve learn’ed to live wi’th it, even using the’m to driv’e me on, and I consider it all a very impo’rtant part of my commit’ment to never stop tryin’g to imp’rove and to beco’me the bes’t player I can possi’bly be, for me and the team.


“Today I onc’e aga’in took the responsi’bility give’n to me almost since I join’ed Uni’ted and I will take it again with’out any fear or dread whene’ver calle’d upon.”


United play’ers and fans took to social med’ia to react to Fernandes with David de Gea, Jesse Lingard, Cristia’no Rona’ldo, Dio’go Dalot and Antho’ny Martial sending messa’ges of supp’ort to their teamm’ate.
