Bruno Fernandes forced to respond to footage of him ‘ignoring’ new signing Andre Onana

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has responded after being accused of ignoring new signing Andre Onana.

On Wednesday, United were up against Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid as they continued their pre-season tour of the United States.

Goals from Jude Bellingham and Joselu sealed a 2-0 victory for Los Blancos.

During the match, Fernandes was criticised by fans after it looked like he ignored new goalkeeper Onana before a corner was taken.

However, the Portuguese has now responded on social media.

Commenting on a post, Fernandes wrote: “Nice how you could see me ignoring him when I was going to the place we was telling me to be positioned in the corner.

“Nice try to make it look bad.”

After being named the new captain of the club by manager Erik ten Hag, Fernandes said: “Obviously, it's a great honour.

“The first time [I wore the captain's armband] was in the Champions League against PSG. I was getting a little bit surprised by Ole but obviously, I said to him at the time it's just such an honour for me.

“I still have the armband and the shirt from that game because I wanted to keep it for me because this is something that is not for everyone.”

He added: “And it's something that has to make you proud, has to make you understand that you are in a place where everyone would like to be: playing for Man United. Having the chance to have the armband and having that responsibility is such a big honour.”
