Manchester United fans have expressed anger over Bruno Fernandes’ comments following their defeat against Bayern Munich.
On Wednesday night, United traveled to Bavaria with hopes of securing a surprise victory against the German Bundesliga champions, Bayern.
However, an error by Andre Onana gifted Bayern their opening goal, with Leroy Sane finding the net.
Serge Gnabry extended Bayern’s lead to 2-0, and although Rasmus Hojlund scored in the second half to make it 2-1, United couldn’t complete the comeback.
Harry Kane made it 3-1 from 12-yards but Casemiro put United back in it in the closing stages before Mathys Tel made it 4-2. Fernandes scored to make it 4-3 but there was no time left for Erik ten Hag’s men to make a comeback.
After the match, Fernandes said: “No one would expect us to come to Bayern and score three goals.
“I think no one would expect us to fight for the result and try to get something from the game.”
However, Fernandes’ comments have not gone down well amongst the United fanbase.
On social media, One said: “Imagine the Captain of Manchester United saying this… From Roy Keane to this.”
Another tweeted: “This is so embarrassing.”
A third fan added: “We’ve fallen off the Grand Canyon, our fans actually rate this guy and think he can lead us to success, we are cooked.”
Someone else wrote: “I love Bruno but this is appalling.”
Whilst a fifth commented: “This is embrassing to be honest.”
On the back of the defeat, United boss Ten Hag said: “Disappointed and when you score three goals in Munich, at the least you have to take a point and we didn’t.
“And you have to look in the mirror because the goals were easy giveaways.”
He added: “We were in the first 25 minutes better in the game than Munich and then that goal, it was so easy and it was not only Andre. If you see how easy Sane is going through and that has to do with determination, you don’t let players through so easy.”
