Manchester United Captain Bruno Fernandes says they fought hard in yesterday’s defeat to FC Copenhagen after going down to 10 men in the first half but admits they need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

United cruised to a two-goal lead thanks to a Rasmus Hojlund brace within the opening half-hour of the game before a red card shown to Marcus Rashford proved a decisive moment in the game, with the home side scoring twice to level before the break.

Bruno managed to bring United back into the game, but Copenhagen killed off the match late in the second half with strikes from Lukas Lareger and Roony Bardghji.

“It’s disappointing, obviously,” the Portugal international told MUTV after the match. “I think for everything we did in the game, we could and should have gotten something from it.

“It’s difficult at the moment; obviously, the mood is not the best because we fought so hard with 10 men. Even from then, we were playing against a team that plays really well with the ball, and apart from that, many decisions were against us.

“Today was a tough day, but I think the team’s effort was good, we tried. We could have done some things better, but it was difficult for us from 30 minutes on, playing with one player less.”
