‘Embarrassing, disgraceful’ – Two Man United legends tear into Bruno Fernandes after display vs Liverpool

A pair of former Manchester United stars have, late on Sunday, made their frustrations with Bruno Fernandes crystal clear.

This, of course, comes owing to the midfielder’s efforts, or lack thereof, during the Red Devils latest outing earlier today.

En route to one of the most embarrassing results in United’s recent history, in the form of a seven-goal drubbing at the hands of arch rivals Liverpool, Fernandes was one of a host of stars singled out for widespread condemnation.

After missing a golden early chance to put the visitors in front at Anfield, the Portuguese essentially shirked his responsibilities as captain, trotting and whinging his way through proceedings as Erik ten Hag’s men were torn limb from limb.

And, as alluded to above, such sub-par endeavours on Fernandes’ part did not go at all unnoticed amongst the club’s former player base.

Speaking as part of his punditry role for Sky Sports post-match, Gary Neville showed absolutely no hesitation in tearing into the 28-year-old.

“I’m going to start with Bruno Fernandes because honestly I’ve had enough of him throwing his arms around at his teammates.

“I’ve had enough of him not running back. He whinges at everybody.

“He got pushed in the chest and goes down holding his face, he’s got to put in a captain’s performance out there.

“That wasn’t a captain’s performance by a Manchester United player.”

And Neville was soon followed by one-time teammate Roy Keane, who went as far as to label Fernandes’ behaviour on Sunday as ‘disgraceful’:

“Fernandes’ body language today was nothing short of disgraceful.

“A really talented boy, he’s your captain, but his body language, waving his arms, not running back, you wouldn’t be happy with him in your dressing room.”
