Bruno Fernandes Reveals Real Reason Why Manchester United are Struggling this Season

A Manchester United player, Bruno Fernandes, has highlighted the club's worrisome number and manner of goals conceded this season.

United have conceded 17 goals in just ten league games, and Bruno Fernandes believes that is why the team is struggling this season.

The Portuguese international has pleaded with his United teammates to assist the team in becoming more defensively sound.

In response to the setback to Manchester City, the player stated that the club owed a debt of gratitude to goalkeeper David de Gea for averting an embarrassing scoreline, but encouraged the Spanish shot-stopper to be protected.

Conceding a goal is always a difficult time, "Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports following the 0-2 loss to Manchester City." "The issue is the manner in which we concede goals. It's far too simple.

" As I've stated numerous times, if it weren't for David [De Gea], the outcome might have been much worse for us.

We need to improve our defense, David, because he protects us so well, and we need to assist him because he cannot make eight or nine saves in every game and still surrender goals.

"Obviously, everyone is disappointed with the result, but also with the performance," the Manchester United midfielder continued.

"We are aware that we can do much better and that this is insufficient for a player representing such a prestigious club. We must examine ourselves in the mirror. I'm repeating what I said in the previous interview, but that's it.

"We have to look at ourselves, each individual, and determine what they can do to aid the team. We simply need to apologize to the fans, because our performance was not good enough.

" They create an incredible environment. They pushed us to the limit. They attempted to give us that energy, but it was insufficient from us. "
