Fernandes unhurt in car crash

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is unhurt after being involved in a car crash on his way to training yesterday.

No parties involved are understood to have sustained serious injuries and Fernandes, 27, subsequently trained with the United squad as normal.

“He [Fernandes] was okay and will be fit for tomorrow,” said United’s interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are second in the top flight and chasing an unprecedented quadruple, while United sit fifth in the table three points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham.

Fernandes has scored nine goals and provided six assists in 30 league appearances for United this term.

The Portugal playmaker, who is a key component of Rangnick’s side, most recently appeared in United’s narrow 3-2 win over relegation-threatened Norwich on Saturday.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters attended a road traffic collision between two cars on School Lane, Dunham Massey, at around 9:45 on Monday.

“Firefighters made both vehicles safe and were at the scene for around three quarters of an hour,” they added. –BBC
