Manchester United are on the brink of reaching this month’s final in Poland after winning the first leg of their semi-final against Roma 6-2 at Old Trafford.
“For us, it is a psychological improvement if we win the Europa League,” said Fernadnes.
“Because last season we didn’t win anything, so if we win a trophy it is an improvement.
“It’s still not enough for us, but it is something from the club, from the players to say that we are doing better. But there is still a lot to improve, as I said before.
“Honestly, for me, when you play for a club like this your standards have to be high.
“The most important thing for us is the way we win and we are closer to getting a trophy.”
