Bruno Fernandes assumed the captaincy from the previous captain, England international Harry Maguire, who expressed his disappointment at losing the role at the club.

Erik Ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, hand-picked Fernandes to take over as captain.

The decision was based on Fernandes’ leadership qualities, as he had already captained the team on multiple occasions during the previous season.

His experience and performances on the field made him a natural choice for the captaincy, and he has embraced the role with responsibility and maturity.

Fernandes’ long-range finish was a classic from his repertoire of goals and set the tone for a largely dominant performance from United in front of a crowd of 82,262 in New York.

Ten Hag and co. are in action next against Wrexham as they look to make it four out of four to continue a perfect pre-season run in the States.
