The selfless gesture shown by the footballer, Bruno Fernandes
Teamwork makes the dreamwork Manchester United star player took this by heart when he gave up his hat trick chance and poured a part of his glory onto his teammate, Marcus Rashford. Having scored twice against Istanbul Basaksehir, Fernandes had bestowed his penalty to Rashford so he could gain some confidence in his skills. Fans all over the world loved this gesture from their favorite player, deeming it as the epitome of teamwork.
The match ended at 4-1 with Daniel James’s strike finishing it. Fernandes said that it’s all about teamwork. Where there is teamwork, there is victory. He also added that as a team, it’s important to map each team’s personal growth. The personal growth graph of all team members should be upwards then only the graph of the same for the same will go upwards. Being a man of his words, Bruno said that he had promised his teammate Rashy the next chance for a penalty hat-trick. Remembering his teammate as one of the top scorers in the Premier League, he explained how this chance of hitting a hattrick in the given penalty would be beneficial for Rashy as an individual player and also for his football career.
Fernandes scored two goals within a 20 minutes time frame at Old Trafford, thus showing his prowess as a star player. He could’ve scored the hat-trick easily but he chose the efforts of his team first rather than self-interest. He is also known as the United’s first choice of penalty taker so of course, he was expected to score the third time again but he baffled everybody with his sweet decision of selflessness.
The decision of United’s midfielder that awed the fans was a surprise because he has always been known for his hat tricks. This selfless gesture of his was enough to melt their hearts and fans too left no leaf unturned in expressing their admiration for him as a person all over the internet. The 25 years old is famously known for his 14-minute hat-trick, which he scored in the 84th minute of the match of the premier league in 2019. In the world of football where the spotlight is always on the rivalry between Ronaldo and Messi, we finally are given the Fernandes-Rashford duo igniting the spirit of teamwork in all of us. This duo is nothing less than the epitome of friendship where no matter what, you have your mates’ back.
When asked during a press conference, Solskjaer said that he was not at all surprised by what Fernandes did. Describing Fernandes as a risk-taker as well as a hardcore athlete, he further added that Fernandes is a person who likes to see his team winning and is more than willing to do than just taking penalties to achieve his vision. The manager added that he was more than happy for his players to share the penalties among them.
