Man Utd ace Fernandes: None of us knew Wan-Bissaka could shoot!

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says the players are delighted for Aaron Wan-Bissaka after victory at Newcastle United.

The fullback scored his first ever senior goal in the 4-1 win.

Fernandes said afterwards: "We were all very happy, because we did not know that Aaron can shoot!

"It was even more difficult to believe that he scored a goal. We have never seen him strike on goal. We discussed this with him in the locker room, asked him. We thought he only wants to cross.

"Seriously though, everyone knows Wan-Bissaka as a defensive footballer, but he needs to be shown that he can do something in attack. I believe that he has all the qualities for this."
