“We hope Harry will be fit for the weekend [for the Chelsea game] but we’re not sure,” Solskjaer told reporters in Paris.
“The captain is sitting next to me. Bruno will captain the team tomorrow.”
I was not expecting this,’ Fernandes admitted. ‘I found out this the same time as you!’
‘It is an honour and an important achievement for me. The captain is everyone – everyone needs to help, be a leader in their way.
‘I think I’m playing well in the last few months, but I have to improve and do better. I think I can do much better than before. I know my numbers are good, but I’m sure I will do better numbers and games than before.’
