Manchester United hitman Bruno Fernandes has revealed how he kept himself occupied as huge protests took place outside the team's hotel in Manchester city centre ahead of their clash against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

The United squad were unable to leave their hotel as fans lit smoke grenades and continued the mass protest against the Glazers outside the team hotel.

Similar protests happened outside Old Trafford which also saw fans break into the Old Trafford stadium.

And while that was going on, Fernandes has revealed that watching his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo play in the Serie A against Udinese is what kept him well occupied as they were at the team hotel.

"I was in my room watching Udinese v Juventus," Fernandes explained.

He added, "I didn’t try to go outside. I did what security said and stayed in my room."

Speaking about the protests, Bruno stated, "The most important is that everyone has something to say. The most important thing is the team and we have a good group."

He concluded, "It was completely different, that was the fans and players, it was really different to Sunday. I don’t want to compare. I don’t want to remember that, what happened on Sunday is past."

Fernandes revealed the above as he spoke before United's Europa League semi-final second leg clash against AS Roma on Thursday.
