After Saturday’s thrilling late-game win against Brentford in the Premier League, Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes declared, “It’s Fergie time” at the club.
Recall that Manchester United’s victory over Brentford at Old Trafford was secured by a late brace from substitute Scott McTominay.
Fernandes said after the game that Erik ten Hag’s squad had good game control against the visitors.
We had good game management. That’s the manager’s standard line concerning the runner crew. The Portugal midfielder remarked (through the Manchester Evening News) that “Scott came on for 10 minutes and scored two goals.”
According to Sir Alex Ferguson, “it is Fergie time at United, it is quite normal to score at this time of the game, and part of it being Fergie time, it has to be an academy player scoring too.”
Meanwhile, the club’s never-say-die attitude was on full display in the late-game heroics against Brentford, which harkened back to the legendary era of former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
