Bruno Fernandes, a goal-scoring captain for Manchester United, was acclaimed as the game's MVP following his team's victory over Real Betis in the first leg of the Europa League last-16.
After United's humiliating 7-0 loss to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, Fernandes bore the brunt of harsh criticism directed at the team. Nonetheless, Ten Hag stated in the lead-up to the game that the Portuguese would continue to serve as captain if Harry Maguire was absent. Fernandes then rewarded Ten Hag's confidence with an amazing contribution to a crucial victory.
He headed Luke Shaw's corner in the 58th minute for his eighth goal of the year. Marcus Rashford, Antony and Wout Weghorst were also on the scoresheet as United put themselves in a strong position to reach the last eight.
