Man Utd playmaker Bruno Fernandes: Solskjaer kicks me out of training!

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has revealed his extra work at training lead to his stunning free-kick winner against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Portuguese did not start the game but still made his impact felt with the scores tied at 2-2.

"Almost every day [I practice free-kicks], sometimes he [Solskjaer] has to kick me out of training to stop," Fernandes told MUTV.

"I'm always working on that kind of situation, I like to watch and learn from Juan [Mata]. He's a really good specialist and me and Juan stay out a lot, also Rashy, Alex [Telles], Fred, although I think it's just for fun with Fred.

"Normally long distance is more for Rashy, for me the distance closer to the box is better for me and the kind of shot I have, if Juan or Alex are on the pitch it's a chance for them on the right side."
