With regular skipper Harry Maguire not traveling for the Champions League game against PSG, Bruno Fernandes will take the armband.
Fernandes was captured giving a shocked reaction after finding out that he will captain the Red Devils for first time against Ligue 1 giants.
The midfielder therefore appeared surprised when finding out the news in the pre-match press conference.
Bruno Fernandes caught by surprise
“I was not expecting this, for me it’s an honour to be captain of Manchester United.”
“It is an important achievement for me but I think everyone is the captain.”
“Everyone needs to help and be a leader in their own way, leadership is different in every player.”
“The game will not be about me but the team but leading is every day on the training ground.”
“Every game and everyone is doing their job to lead the team in the way they think is best,” Fernandes said in the press conference.
The midfielder has been the most vocal player at the club since the day he arrived and will feel even more empowered as captain.
Fernandes was even filmed having a go at Alex Telles during a game of keep ball in a light training session before the squad flew off to Paris.
His demands are high and even Roy Keane would approve.
Bruno Fernandes will not be tamed either because he says it is just how he is made.
“I think I grew up like this. It’s the way I have to be in life and in football too. It’s my character.”
“Sometimes it’s too much and sometimes other players are less. I think I can help the team with the way I am.”
“All the players are driven and you need all of the different characters in the team to complete a very good team.”
“I think it’s important, the way I am, to complete the others, and it’s important the qualities the others have, to complete me,” he noted.
Manchester United targets a win in the opening encounter of this season’s UEFA Champions League against PSG.
