Bruno Fernandes' son provided early signs that he might as well follow his father in being a professional football player, pulling out a cool celebration to boot.

Fernandes' family joined the rest of Manchester United players and their families at Old Trafford at the end of their last game of the season against Fulham on May 30.

It has been a season marked by highs and lows for United faithful, but they will be buoyed by Erik ten Hag's presence at the club.

The Dutch tactician led them to their first trophy in six years before guiding them back to Champions League football.

Cristiano Ronaldo's acrimonious departure and the 7-0 thumping at Liverpool before the 3-0 defeat away to Sevilla remain the low moments of the season.

But with one more final in the FA Cup to come, ten Hag reiterated the need for the squad to stay together. The families then enjoyed a lap of honour with their children having a feel of the grass in the Manchester sun.

Fernandes' son, Goncalo, scored past Fred before doing the knee slide and cupping his ears with his hands - a perfect replica of his father's goal celebration.

The senior Fernandes has played a vital role in the Red Devils' campaign.

He has captained the squad for large periods of the season in the absence of Harry Maguire. The Portuguese midfielder scored eight goals and assisted eight times as well in the Premier League.

Fernandes shrugs off United-Chelsea altercation

Sports Brief previously reported that Fernandes downplayed the tense situation between Man United and Chelsea players during their Premier League encounter on May 25.

The Portuguese midfielder scored his team's third goal of the night in the 4-1 rout, to further condemn Frank Lampard's charges to what remains a miserable season.

On the flip side, the win guaranteed United a top-four finish in the Premier League and, therefore, confirmed a return to UEFA Champions League football next season.
