Wenger says Man Utd ace Fernandes now 'on his knees'

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes the form of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has been fading.

Fernandes was unable to lead United to Europa League success as they were undone in the final on penalties by Villarreal.

The match itself was a low quality affair with the 26-year-old unable to influence proceedings.

Wenger told Bein Sports: “I personally feel that he finished the season on his knees, and he missed the spark. And sometimes you can see as well, I found him much more nervous in the game.

"So that as well a sign of fatigue. Your top-level is calm, concentration, control. And in the last four or five games, I find him a bit weak on that front. So I hope that he can recover to be efficient for Portugal."
