Fernandes says Man Utd revival not just down to him

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Bruno Fernandes says his stellar form since he arrived at Manchester United in January is not the only reason why the club’s fortunes have improved on the pitch.After an inconsistent first half of the season, United are unbeaten in the nine games Fernandes has featured in since his £47 million ($58 million) move from Sporting Lisbon.In the Premier League, United are unbeaten in five games and up to fifth place, firmly in the battle for Champions League places.The midfielder has scored three goals and made four assists.“I see the same team from one month ago,” the Portugal international told Sky Sports. “I think we are the same and have a lot of hunger to win, to give a lot, to do better and better in every game.“In the last month, we’ve had a lot of really good games and I think we can talk about a new start after Bruno, but it’s not about Bruno, it’s about the team.”The 25-year-old said he was a different player from his team-mates.“Everyone has a different mould to play,” he said. “Maybe I take more risks, maybe other players don’t take as many, maybe I shoot more, some players pass more, some of the players make more tackles, everyone is different in a club.” FILE PHOTO: Bruno Fernandescenter_img Fernandes shone in last week’s derby victory over Manchester City at Old Trafford and got involved in a spat with opposition manager Pep Guardiola late in the game.The pair exchanged words and Fernandes then put a finger to his lips, gesturing for Spaniard Guardiola to be quiet.Asked about the incident, Fernandes said: “I talked about this with some friends. Some people think, ‘Pep won everything, who is Bruno to do this to him?’“I think it’s about respect. Now, when I’m outside of the pitch and calm, I don’t do this again if I’m on the pitch now but in that moment, the words he tells make me mad and I’m a little bit nervous and this is the kind of player I am.”Fernandes said he jumped at the chance to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.“I talked with Sporting, who had already had some discussions with Man United about my transfer and when they talk with me, I told them my first choice was Man United and it’s what I need for my career,” he said.The Premier League season was suspended on Friday due to the coronavirus pandemic.last_img read more

Sunday’s special: A big helping of Pot Roast

first_imgDenver Broncos defensive tackle Terrance Knighton talks with reporters during a news conference Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, in Jersey City, N.J. (AP Photo)JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — When defensive end Jeremy Mincey signed with Denver last month, he couldn’t believe defensive tackle Terrance Knighton had tried to ditch his nickname “Pot Roast.”“I’m like, ‘Dude, that’s a great name. Like, it makes you seem colossal,” Mincey recounted.The 6-foot-3 330-pound Knighton has sure come up huge for the Broncos in the playoffs.Knighton, who was teammates with Mincey in Jacksonville from 2009-12, helped hold New England’s bruising running back LeGarrette Blount to 6 yards on five carries in the AFC Championship a week after his four-TD game against Indianapolis.Knighton also dumped Tom Brady for a sack on a crucial fourth down, then busted out some smooth dance moves.“He had an outstanding game,” Mincey said. “He’s a good player, man. Listen, he’s always been like that. It didn’t surprise me. It might have surprised a lot of people, but it didn’t surprise me.”The Broncos could use an encore performance out of Knighton against Seattle Seahawks running back Marshall Lynch and elusive quarterback Russell Wilson in the Super Bowl so that Peyton Manning and his record-shattering offense can get on the field to do their thing.Mincey said he expects a gargantuan game out of his buddy, big enough, he said, to make “Pot Roast” as much a part of Super Bowl lore as William “The Refrigerator” Perry.“Dude, dude, there’s no limits to this kid, man. He’s phenomenally athletic. He can run for his size. He’s very intelligent. I mean, he’s basically built for this game,” Mincey said. “I don’t know what other way to put it, he’s built for this game.”As for his nickname, Knighton, a fifth-year pro out of Temple, said he was so ready to start anew after so many losing seasons in Jacksonville that when he signed his two-year, $4.5 million deal in Denver, he even wanted a new moniker.At his introductory news conference, he asked for suggestions on Twitter. Nobody came up with anything better, but some of his teammates in Denver did start calling him T-Knight — until Mincey arrived in mid-December after his release from the Jaguars.“I didn’t know he was re-establishing himself or trying to get away from that name,” Mincey said. “I think they got back to it when I first got here and I’m like, ‘Yeah, it’s an honor playing with my boy Pot Roast again.”Mincey told him to embrace it.“I said, ‘Dude, you get a nickname in the NFL, man, take it and run with it.”And so he has — even though he’s not really a huge fan of the dish. He said he’s only had it twice, once during his rookie season in Jacksonville in 2009 and again earlier this month when he took Denver’s entire defensive line out to dinner.Like any good nickname, Knighton didn’t get to choose it himself. It was bestowed upon him by former Jaguars linebacker Clint Ingram on a flight home from Seattle his rookie year.“It was a six-hour flight, guys are tired, plane is dark and the lady is walking down the aisle saying, ‘Pot roast? Pot roast? And I’m like, ‘Right here. My teammate behind me was like, ‘You’re saying that like that’s your name. I’m going to call you ‘Pot Roast.’ And then it stuck with me,” Knighton recounted.“It was either that or shrimp alfredo. So, I’m glad I got that.”___AP NFL website:  www.pro32.ap.org___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapletonlast_img read more
