Marcus Rashford winning Player of the Month is met with Bruno Fernandes’ two-word answer

Glazers Manchester United Red Devils

Marcus Rashford was chosen Player of the Month for January in the Premier League, according to a cheeky assertion made by Bruno Fernandes.

After scoring three goals in four games over the course of the month, Rashford won the prize for a second time. He contributed to Manchester United’s two victories, one of which came against bitter rival Manchester City on derby day.

His best goal was a long-range shot that he made in the loss to Premier League leaders Arsenal. His efforts also earned him the Premier League honour as well as United’s own club award, which is chosen by the fans.

Rashford posted an Instagram picture of himself clutching the two awards to commemorate his two victories. He thanked his teammates for assisting him in achieving the distinction.

“The last month couldn’t have gone better for me. On a personal note, it’s the first time I’ve won these awards together and hopefully not the last. Thank you to my teammates, the coaches, my family and the fans for helping me to win these awards,” he wrote.

Bruno Fernandes and his reply to Rashford’s performance too hilarious

After assisting on two of Rashford’s goals, Bruno Fernandes quickly jokingly claimed responsibility for the victory. He responded to Rashford’s article with a scathing two-word comment, stating: “You welcome”.

With 18 goals in 31 games across all competitions so far this season, Rashford has established himself as an important member of Erik ten Hag’s squad. And in order to help United overcome their six-year trophy drought, he has committed to continue these performances.

“It’s obviously a nice feeling. For me, we’re entering one of the most important parts of the season, so I’m still looking to achieve a lot of things. Winning these types of achievements along the way always helps you to push forward and improve,” he told MUTV.

“I’m hoping that I can continue to do that in the coming games. It’s probably just being in the right place at the right time, consistently doing that. Consistently being in the areas can be tough at times because the ball’s not always there.”

“Like I said, I’m pleased that they’re going in and I feel confident enough to take the chances when they come so it’s about searching for that chance, and you have 95 minutes in a game to do it.”
