The former Arsenal manager thinks that the Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes “finished the season on his knees” after playing too many game and that it could effect his European Championship with Portugal this summer.

“I personally feel that he finished the season on his knees, and he missed the spark,” Wenger told beIN Sports. “And sometimes you can see as well, I found him much more nervous in the game (Europa League final).
“So that, as well, is a sign of fatigue. Your top level is calm, concentration, control. And in the last four or five games, I found him a bit weak on that front. So I hope that he can recover to be efficient for Portugal.
“I know Bruno wants to play but sometimes you make decisions for the benefit of both the team and him.”
“Portugal at the moment to me looks to be the best equipped to be dangerous because they won the European Championship in France,” Wenger said.
“They have since had good results in the Nations League, and overall, I would say they have great offensive potential as well.
“They have (Diogo) Jota who plays now at Liverpool, who is a very convincing player.
“They have fantastic players. They have (Pedro) Neto. They’re spoiled for choice as well. Portugal produces players.”
