Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernández responded to criticism about the Red Devils and how many penalties he scored, saying that penalty kicks were actually not easy.
Since joining Manchester United in January, Fernández has scored 12 goals, 8 of which are penalty kicks, and Manchester United has won 23 penalties, which has become a hot topic. In this regard, Fernández said: "Punishment kicks are part of the game. Since you have a chance, you need to score. In 2008, Manchester United won the Champions League through a penalty kick."
"I know everyone is talking about penalty kicks, as if it is easy to take a penalty kick. For those watching TV, a penalty kick is easy. You watch the goalkeeper pounce to the left. Why don't you shoot to the right? Yes, I can shoot to the right, but at the time I was thinking about the left and the goalkeeper saved the ball. This is also possible."
Some fans gave Fernandez the nickname "Penandes", but the Portuguese didn't care: "The most important thing for me is to keep scoring goals."
