How Ana helped Fernandes in the ‘tough times’

Ahead of the FA Cup final against Manchester City last month, Bruno Fernandes paid an emotional tribute to Ana. The midfielder revealed how Ana paid for their movie tickets since he lacked the funds to do so. Fernandes said, “She had a nice job working as a futsal referee on the weekends. She used to do three or four matches in a row on a Saturday, and then we would always go to the cinema on Sundays.”


The biggest challenge for Bruno Fernandes came while in Udinese. The midfielder was not having the best of time. As such, during a team winner, the sporting director revealed the playmaker was surplus to the team’s requirements, with Ana beside. But, as always, Ana was there for him. Fernandes revealed, “Remember when I was crying in the hotel room? Remember what you told me? Keep going. This is your dream.] Look at where we are now…. The tough times, they have never broken us.”
