    ‘The day after the Newcastle game, my dad sent me a message – and he never sends me a message, he always calls me the day after the game, always,’ Fernandes told the official Manchester United podcast.

    ‘And this message says, “Congratulations on your goal, but from tomorrow I will start to explain to you how to take penalties!”

    ‘I was like, “Hey, I’ve missed one penalty in 11 and he’s talking to me about this”, because he never scored a penalty in all the years he was playing football! 

    ‘But this kind of situation helps you improve because all the time you know you have people behind you who will always ask more and demand more from you.’

    Fernandes went on to score later in the match as the Red Devils went on to win the game 4-1

    Fernandes also revealed that his competitiveness isn’t limited to the football pitch with the midfielder determined to win during family games such as Uno – even against his three-year-old daughter. 

    ‘Always [I’ve had a competitive personality]. Always. I hate losing. In everything,’ he said.

    ‘Two days ago I was playing Uno with my little daughter and you know, sometimes you just need to let them win. So in this game she plays two +4 [cards], and she lays down +4 twice. 

    ‘She’s young, she doesn’t know so sometimes you ask, do you have any other cards to put down and when I asked, she put another +4 down, so I take another 8 cards.

    ‘Then I got rid of all these cards – bang bang bang and I won that game. I needed to win because I was so angry that she put me twice +4 … she made me pick up all these cards!

    ‘My wife was looking at me and she said to me, “You are always the same.”‘
