Bruno Fernandes has said this season has not been a success for Manchester United despite winning a trophy and securing a return to the Champions League.
United have lifted the Carabao Cup in Erik ten Hag’s first season in charge — with a chance to win the FA Cup in next month’s final against Manchester City — and on Thursday they earned a top-four finish with a 4-1 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Fernandes accepts the campaign has been a step forward after finishing sixth last season but said it cannot be classed as a success for a club of United’s size.

“It’s a positive season, not successful because success is different for this club and for us players it has to be too,” Fernandes said.
“We did win a trophy. We got into the top four. Now we have another final but whatever happened in that final will not change anything about the season we have done.
“After we couldn’t fight anymore for the league title we had to fight for our top four and we did it. We are really happy to be in the Champions League next season. But obviously, it’s kind of an obligation for this club to be in these positions.”
