Bruno Fernandes branded 'embarrassment' as footage of damning Manchester United incident emerges

Bruno Fernandes branded 'embarrassment' as footage of damning Manchester United incident emerges

The United captain drew the ire of fans in the Premier League loss to Fulham

Bruno Fernandes is undoubtedly a very talented player but has the habit of frustrating fans with his off the ball antics in games - and one in Manchester United's loss to Fulham summed it up.

United were on the end of a 2-1 loss to the Cottagers at Old Trafford in the Premier League yesterday.

Calvin Bassey put Fulham ahead in the second half, before Harry Maguire looked to have ensured a share of the spoils with an equaliser before full-time.

But the Cottagers won it deep into injury time as Alex Iwobi swept home to stun the hosts who had been pressing for a winner themselves.

The defeat ended a run of four consecutive wins for Erik ten Hag's side as their push for Champions League football hit another hurdle.

The loss means United are now eight points behind fourth placed Aston Villa with 12 games of the season remaining.

In the defeat to the Cottagers, Fernandes grabbed an assist for Maguire's equaliser, but he also drew the ire of fans with an off the ball incident.

The Portuguese international was driving towards the final third and took a shot from distance as he was challenged by Fulham midfielder Sasa Lukic.

After letting loose, Fernandes collapsed to the Old Trafford pitch grabbing his ankle and gesturing to referee Michael Oliver, who waved away his appeals.

The attacker rolled over as play continued, but as he realised nothing was going to be given, Fernandes returned to his feet and appeared to move fairly freely as he complained in Oliver's direction.

The X account EPL Bible tweeted footage of the incident with comment: "Bruno Fernandes is embarrassing."

And social media users were clear in their damning criticism of the United man following the incident.

It really is not a good look from Fernandes, particularly bearing in mind he is United captain, having taken over from Maguire over the summer.

And if you have not seen it, have a watch below and make your mind up.
