Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes was in a bit of disbelief after Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s stunning effort against Newcastle. Before the game against Newcastle, Wan-Bissaka had managed just one shot on target in 37 Premier League matches.

So to see Wan-Bissaka so high up the pitch and even firing a stunning show into the Newcastle net left plenty of his team-mates surprised, none more so than Fernandes.

“[We were so happy] because we didn’t know he can shoot!” he told MUTV. “So it’s difficult for us believing he can score because we never see him shooting.

“We were talking about it now in the dressing room and asking him because we all were thinking he wanted to cross and he makes a bad ball and scores.”

Fernandes now wants to see Wan-Bissaka make a conscious effort to join the attack more regularly.

“But I’m happy for him, he deserved the goal and we always ask this from him,” he added. “Be more positive, be more in the box, try and improve because he has such good qualities. Everyone knows about him being a defensive player and everything but he needs to show that he’s more than a defensive player and I think he has the qualities to show that.”
