Fernandes apologized for missing penalty against Aston Villa

Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty for Manchester United against Aston Villa in Saturday’s football match. Fernandes took to social media to express his disappointment and apologized for missing an injury-time penalty in the club’s shock Premier League defeat to Aston Villa. He promised to bounce back despite the club’s poor run of form.

After the Portuguese blazed a last-gasp penalty kick over the crossbar United was defeated 1-0 at Old Trafford by Villa. Fernandes missed from the spot for the second time in 23 attempts for United in all competitions, and the first time since October 2020 against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

Fernandes wrote via social media: “Nobody is more frustrated and disappointed than me for missing the penalty and the consequent defeat. I’ve always assumed my responsibilities and I’ve always embraced them under pressure in moments like this. Today, I failed. But I took a step forward and faced the challenge with the same ambition and responsibility as when, on many other occasions, the ball ended up in the net.”

“Criticism and contrasting opinions are a big part of football. I’ve learned to live with it, even using them to drive me on, and I consider it all a very important part of my commitment to never stop trying to improve and to become the best player I can possibly be, for me and the team. Today I once again took the responsibility given to me almost since I joined United and I will take it again without any fear or dread whenever called upon.”

He added, “The most important thing for me is to win together and I’ll always do everything I can to help my teammates and the club to be the best we can be. I’m a player who leaves everything on the pitch, with great desire and commitment. And that’s what I’ll continue to do. Thank you for all your support after the final whistle! Hearing you chanting my name in the stadium was very emotional… I will come back stronger for me because these are the standards I hold myself to, but most of all for my teammates and our fans who have always supported us.”
