'Fans will be happy' -Fernandes takes a cheeky dig after Liverpool miss out Champions League spot

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes says the club’s fans will be delighted to see Liverpool miss out on qualification for the Champions League.

Tonight's decisive 4-1 victory over Chelsea by the Red Devils guaranteed them a spot in Europe's top league.

One of United's four goal scorers, Fernandes, was ecstatic to have ensured a top-four finish.

We know that means a lot, but for us, it's about accomplishing our goals, so we did, he said (as reported by the Mirror).

Naturally, we anticipated that the supporters would be pleased if Liverpool did not attend, but for us, it is more important to take care of ourselves and do the best we can.

Chelsea's crushing defeat is made sweeter by Liverpool's suffering

United will receive additional revenue and be able to entice elite players in the forthcoming summer transfer window thanks to their return to the Champions League.

When Erik ten Hag joined United in the summer of last year, it seemed like a breath of fresh air. However, that quickly changed after United opened their season with consecutive losses to Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Red Devils have progressed since then. The team's standards have increased as a result of Ten Hag's excellent work in bringing in the proper players last summer.

A club the size of Manchester United ought to be required to play in the Champions League.

The Red Devils appeared to be in line to finish among the top four, but Liverpool's final seven-match winning streak made things interesting.

When Aston Villa came close to defeating Jurgen Klopp's team at Anfield last weekend, United might have had a chance to secure their position. However, the Villians were still in the game thanks to a late goal from Roberto Firmino.

Fernandes is aware that the victory will be even more satisfying to the supporters because they prevented Liverpool from participating in Europe's top league.
