Bruno Fernandes on his wife’s reaction to him beating their daughter, 3, at Uno

Bruno Fernandes has opened up on his competitive nature, revealing his desire to win is present in all aspects of his life.

The Portuguese has been a revelation since signing for Manchester United, and was largely responsible for the club finishing third last season.

He is known for his determination and willingness to win at all costs, and it seems his wife Ana Pinho and daughter Matilde are privy to his never say die attitude.

Fernandes recently spoke on the official Manchester United podcast, where he suggested he gets his competitive nature from his dad.

While on the subject he provided an example of just how competitive he really is – even away from the football pitch – by revealing he couldn't resist beating his three-year-old daughter in a game of Uno.

"Always [I've had a competitive personality]. Always. I hate losing. In everything," the Manchester United midfielder explained.

"Two days ago I was playing Uno with my little daughter and you know, sometimes you just need to let them win.

"So in this game she plays two +4 [cards], and she lays down +4 twice. 

"She's young, she doesn't know so sometimes you ask, do you have any other cards to put down and when I asked, she put another +4 down, so I take another 8 cards.

"Then I got rid of all these cards – bang bang bang and I won that game. I needed to win because I was so angry that she put me twice +4… she made me pick up all these cards!"

Fernandes' wife Ana saw the whole thing unfold, and by the midfielder's own admission was slightly bemused by what she had witnessed.

"My wife was looking at me and she said to me, 'You are always the same'," he added.
