Virginia Borges is the mother of Bruno Fernandes.

Bruno's, real name Bruno Miguel Borges Fernandes, professionally serves as a Portuguese footballer who portrays the role of a midfielder for the club name Manchester United and also the Portugal national team.

Is Virginia's husband a football player?

Her husband's name is Jose Fernandes. Yes, he was a football player in the past but not now. 

He comes from a middle-class family. That's why he chose to give up the football career to give his family a better life. 

More: Carlos Sequeira, father of Joao Felix from Portugal. 

Nevertheless, his celebrity son Bruno also wore the number 8 jersey because Jose wore the same number in the earlier football days. 

Also, Bruno was born on the same date, i.e., 8th September

Was Virginia left behind with her children after the wedding?

It's true that Virginia, along with her children, was left behind by her spouse. 

Not because they were splitting but due to poverty. There was a time when Portugal faced a financial crisis that made the citizens shift to another country. 

Jose planned to search for a job in Switzerland and settle down there. 

He also thought of going there with his whole family. However, the young Bruno disagreed with his decision. 

Moreover, Bruno threatened his parents, stating that he would leave home if they moved to Switzerland. 

At that moment, her son was involved in the Boavista youth ranks. 

The young Bruno convinced his parents that people of Switzerland are not great at playing football. 

Therefore, Jose left for his journey while his wife and children stayed back in Gueifaes.

Bruno Fernandes dropped out of school

Bruno Fernandes, from an early age, had the clear goal of becoming a great football player. 

That's the reason he dropped out of school without even completing his 11th grade. 

He was counted as an average student while in school. He attended Boavista FC

But after watching his skills, the young Bruno was soon promoted to the club's first team in Serie B

He was in his teens when he got homesick. It's because of the Italian language. 

Bruno found it tough to communicate with others. He even decided to quit his football career and his dreams. 

Nevertheless, the immense support from his family, friends, and also his wife, who left her school and settled down in Italy, had made him back on track.
