Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has aimed a thin-veiled dig at Bruno Fernandes after the Portuguese broke Man United penalty record.

The club insists that no players have travelled to countries on the UK's red list, but they will continue to monitor the situation and contact the players if it changes.

Attentions will now start to turn towards the summer transfer window and the players Manchester United could look to bring in ahead of Solskjaer's second full season in charge at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has suggested that his former employers had benefitted from a number of contentious refereeing decisions and VAR interventions.

Manchester United sealed their spot in Europe's elite club competition thanks to their 2-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon in their final game of the season.

Police stated the four had actually been charged under Articles 20 and 21 of the security law, which handle secession. Authorities in Beijing and Hong Kong say the law will be used to target only a minority of "troublemakers".

That is according to a report from Kicker this week, which claims that the Saints are keen on a move for the 21-year-old, who has scored six goals in 19 caps for his national team.

Mourinho said to MEN: "Bruno came in, was fit, played very well, improved the United team and also proved to be a great penalty taker, one of the best in the world, because he had about 20 to score".

Fernandes will be back in action with the rest of the United squad when the Europa League resumes next month.

The Red Devils won a penalty in the 72nd minute of the Sunday, July 26, cracker after Johnny Evans and Wes Morgan tripped Anthony Martial in the unsafe area.
