Lots of Manchester United fans have been blasting the performance of Bruno Fernandes in their 2-0 loss at home to Manchester City on Saturday.
The former Sporting Lisbon maestro was not his usual self on the pitch and could be blamed for the first goal the Red Devils conceded as he failed to show enough effort to stop the cross which led to Eric Bailly heading the ball into his own net.
Should Fernandes take freekicks for Man Utd?
Fernandes lost out on five of his duels and failed to record a single shot on target, dribble, key pass or accurate cross in the game, while he also lost possession of the ball on 13 different occasions, the most out of any of his teammates (SofaScore).
At least he will be able to have a break with Portugal over the next fortnight before he gets back to playing for United, for whom he will hope to rediscover his best form.
Man Utd fans on Fernandes’ display
These Red Devils fans blasted Fernandes’ performance on Twitter, with one MUFC supporter even going as far as to claim that the 27-year-old was ‘shocking’ in the derby:
“When Fernandes gets frustrated he is horribly ineffective”
“If I was Ole I would find it very difficult not to strangle Bruno Fernandes. Shocking performance”
“Fernandes is supposed to be our attacking outlet and he can’t place a pass at the moment.”
“All Fernandes has done is not stop crosses coming in and giving away possession.”
“Lazy from Bruno!! You’ve got to stop that cross and get out to him”
“Fernandes like so many of his teammates has been so poor today.”
