The playmaker did little to hide his feelings after the game after lamenting the team’s failure to get a result. When asked about the feeling was in the dressing room, Fernandes replied: “Disappointment. I think for everything we did in the game, we could and should have gotten something.
“It is difficult at the moment, obviously, and the mood is not the best because I think we fought so hard with ten men that even from then on it was playing against a team that plays really well on the ball, and as a part of that, many decisions went against us.
“Today was a tough day but I think the team effort was good. We tried. We could have done some things better, but it was difficult for us from thirty minutes on, playing with one player less.”
United can still qualify for the last-16 knockout round but they must not lose to Galatasaray in Turkey to keep their hopes alive with a home game against Bayern Munich still to come.
