Burnley boss Vincent Kompany couldn’t hide his disappointment as he expressed regret over a pivotal goal scored by Bruno Fernandes during Red devil’s recent victory at Turf Moor.
Fernandes’ stunning volley on the stroke of half-time left Kompany in awe. The goal in question unfolded in the 45th minute of the match with an excellent pass from Jonny Evans, who expertly picked out Fernandes in the penalty area. Without hesitation, Fernandes unleashed a first-time volley that sailed into the far corner of the net, leaving the Burnley defense and goalkeeper with no chance.
Speaking about the goal, Vincent Kompany highlighted the significance of the moment for Manchester United.
“It was a pass in behind and he finishes it first time,” Kompany sighs, via Burnley Express. “We work on a lot on these type of moments, so we’ll have to work some more on this. We’re unfortunate with the timing, definitely.
“We had good pressure throughout the game. We were never exposed. If you look at our first two or three games, I don’t think this one had that type of vibe, because we were solid when we had to defend and we were good when we had the ball.
“But that moment (Fernandes’ goal) is the quality of a Premier League player. I could say ‘this is what I would have done’, but they have to learn.”
As Manchester United prepares to face Crystal Palace in the opening game of their EFL title defense, they will be looking to replicate the victory at Old Trafford tomorrow.
