Manchester United’s midfielder Bruno Fernandes was involved in a car accident on Monday morning. According to Sky Sports News, the 27-year-old was involved in a collision, however, it is understood that none of the persons involved was seriously injured. Despite the scare, Fernandes is scheduled to train with the rest of Ralf Rangnick’s side on Monday.
The collision occurred on the eve of United’s crucial Premier League match against Liverpool on Tuesday evening, as the Red Devils are trying to close in on the top four and seal Champions League qualifying for next season. With six games remaining, the Red Devils are only three points behind Tottenham who are in the fourth place. However, they have tough opposition in the form of Jurgen Klopp’s team, as well as fellow top-four opponents Arsenal and Chelsea in their upcoming matches. And, despite the concern on Monday morning, United will be relieved that Fernandes is set to be fit for those crucial games.
After producing nine goals and six assists in the league this season, the midfielder recently signed a five-year contract. And if the Red Devils are to finish in the top four this season, he’ll have to keep contributing. In what has been a below-average season for the Red Devils, his output has dropped as a result of the team’s problems under interim manager Rangnick, with nine goals and 14 assists in 40 games. Despite his on-field stats, he has been one of the team’s most energetic players and will be important to United’s chances of finishing in the top four.
