Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has expressed his interest in managing the club when he retires.
While the 26-year-old does not have any intention of hanging up his boots just yet, Fernandes has made it clear that should he move into management in the future, United is the club he'd want to coach.
Fernandes has played for United since January 2020 and the Portugal international is targeting his first silverware with the club in the Europa League. The Reds will play Roma in the first leg of their semi-final on Thursday.
Ahead of the knockout fixture, he told United's website: "I'm trying to enjoy the football, you know. I think I want to be a coach. Honestly, I would like to be a coach.
"I don’t know which team I would like to manage. Of course, the biggest team if I can manage Manchester United, I will be happy. I can leave now just some words so if people see this, if I’m a manager in the future, the fans can make some pressure to bring me as a coach!
"But I think I would like to be a coach in the future. I’m not sure but for what I feel for football, for the feeling I have, I think I have to continue to be inside of football because my whole life is about this. So I think, in the future, it needs to be with football too."
Fernandes is hoping to bag United a spot in the Europa League final with a good performance on Thursday, and if the club can go on to win the title it will be the side's first trophy in five years.
The star believes United can claim the title and is backing Ole Gunner Solskjaer to get the Red Devils over the line.
He added: "I think, honestly, the team has improved a lot since I arrived. I feel the improvement but I think the team is improving since the coach arrived.
"He’s trying to put his hand on the team and make it better and better."
