Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has addressed the penalty-taking duties ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo's return.
Bruno Fernandes has been the Red Devils' first choice for penalties since his arrvial from Sporting Lisbon in 2020, although that duty belongs to Ronaldo for the Portuguese national side.
Ronaldo has been trusted with penalty duties during his first spell with United, Real Madrid and Juventus, but Solskjaer is yet to make a definitive decision
“I knew that question was going to come!” Ole said in his press conference ahead of Saturday’s match against Newcastle United.
“Of course, I’ve had a chat with the two of them. We’ve got two players there who I trust with my life to put a penalty away and that’s a great position to be in.
“They’ll know by the conversations we’ve had, and the conversations we have before games how we sort this and it’s going to be my decision what will happen and I think the two of them will just keep on doing what they do when they’re asked to take the penalties.”
Fernandes has scored 42 of his 45 penalties throughout his career while has netted 139 from 167 attempts.
