Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has revealed the four teammates that join him to stay behind at training.
The Portugal international has been a revelation since signing for the Red Devils last January.
In 14 Premier League appearances, he scored eight and assisted seven to propel United to a Champions League spot.
And his form has continued this campaign, netting 11 and getting seven assists as the Old Trafford outfit sit top of the Premier League.
The 26-year-old regularly stays behind at training to continue working on his game, obsessed with bettering himself.
Fernandes has opened up over who sticks around with him after speaking out on his match-winning free-kick against Liverpool.
After coming on off the bench, the Portuguese ace proved the difference as United beat their arch-rivals 3-2 in the FA Cup.
When asked if practiced free-kicks, he told MUTV, “I think almost every day.
“Sometimes he [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer] has to kick me out of the training to stop.
“I’m always working on that kind of situation. I like to watch and learn from Juan [Mata] because I think he is a really good specialist.
“I think in training we stay there most of the time – me and Juan stay longer, but also Alex [Telles], Rashy [Marcus Rashford], Fred also stays with us.”
Fernandes is not the only fine set-piece taker the club has with Solskjaer spoilt for choice when it comes to free-kicks.
“I think normally a little bit more long distance is for Rashy,” Fernandes added.
“I think he feels more comfortable [from there], for me it is the same, to go the [closer] distance. I think closer to the box is better for me, for the kind of shot I have.
“Of course, if Juan and Alex are on the pitch it’s a chance for them, more on the right side. I think we have good free-kick specialists.
“I think we have some players who can take [good free-kicks]. It will depend on the moment. In that moment, I felt I was confident to take the free-kick. It was me and luckily it was a goal.”
Also, Fernandes revealed his free-kick was inspired by some advice from savvy veteran Edinson Cavani.
The Portuguese star told BBC Sport: “Edi, before the free-kick, told me: ‘Try a hard one on the side of the keeper’.
“I tried it and it went in well.”
