Man Utd captain Fernandes: No excuses for Bayern Munich defeat

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has refused to make any excuses for his team's bad form.

The Red Devils have now lost four games in a row in all competitions, including losses to Tottenham, Arsenal, Brighton, and now Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Fernandes did not make excuses post-game in Munich, despite the club's mounting injury list.

"We don't have to think about the injured players," Bruno told TNT Sports.

"We have enough players to give a response on the pitch.

“Obviously, we want everyone fit, as many players as possible, and we know we have some important players injured, but that's not an excuse not to win games."

"Obviously, it's really difficult to take this one," he added.

"We knew it was going to be tough to play against Bayern. We knew they're such a great team. When you give so much space to them, and time to them, they're going to hurt you. We start the game, then 1-0 down, 2-0 down. We came back in the second half, to 2-1, and we concede an early goal. Again we came back, to 3-2, and we concede again.

"Overall, we stayed in the game but could have hurt them a little bit more, had a bit more patience on the ball. There were many good things to take from the game but it wasn't enough to win the game."
