‘Elite mentality’ – Fans spot Casemiro calling out Bruno Fernandes after Aston Villa game

Manchester United edged out Aston Villa in Sunday’s (30 April) crucialPremier Leagueclash, but not everyone at Old Trafford was happy at the final whistle.

Fans spotted Casemiro calling out Bruno Fernandes for an error he made right before the end, which nearby saw United concede – in scenes reminiscent of February’s Carabao Cup final.

It was a tense afternoon for United, who held onto their 1-0 lead – which came courtesy of Bruno – for the entirety of the second half. While managing to keep in-form Villa largely quiet, the precarious nature of the scoreline meant there was no margin for error.

Hence, when Bruno gave the ball away cheaply in the closing stages, almost leading to a Villa goal, it didn’t go down too well with serial winner Casemiro.

Watch the moment he confronted the Portuguese star below.

The response from Casemiro, who joined United last summer, was viewed as the mark of a true winner by many fans on Twitter.

One United supporter whoposted a clip of the momentcaptioned it with: “Casemiro holding Bruno accountable for stupidly losing the ball with 20 seconds left, we almost conceded at the death because of it. Elite MENTALITY!!!”

Several fans echoed this sentiment, with one replying: “I was fuming at Bruno too…Casemiro elite.”

A third person wrote: “This guy’s mentality is on another level.”

While a fourth user added: “Need more figures like that in the dressing room.”

The win for United came amid ongoing turmoil off the pitch, with the ownership situation still up in the air. With Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim emerging as leading contenders to buy the club, a group of United fans took to the streets prior to the Villa game to demand a complete sale.

The protest follows reports in the media which suggested that Ratcliffe’s takeover would see the Glazers remain as part-owners, instead of the American family walking away from the club completely.

Its set to be a defining week for the Red Devils, as takeover bids continue to be scrutinised and contemplated ahead of a final sale.

On Sunday, news also broke that Jassim, chairman of a prominent Qatari bank, would look to make Neymar his first marquee signing if his takeover bid is successful.
