| Last updated
Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes could not help but aim a cheeky dig at teammate Marcus Rashford after their win against Real Betis.
On Thursday, United arrived at the Estadio Benito Villamarin to seal their passage to the last eight of the Europa League having won 4-1 in the first leg.
In Seville, the match was a much more cagey affair, United eventually came out on top after a stunning winner from Rashford in the 56th minute.
After the match, the England international took to Instagram to show his delight, he posted a picture with a caption that read: “Qualified.”
Fernandes took the opportunity to mock his teammate after Rashford missed a much easier chance before his winning goal.
The Portuguese commented: “Ok you don’t like the easy ones,” accompanied by a wink and the side eyes emojis.
Rashford swiftly replied with: “Next time it goes in my brother.” A brilliant moment between the two stand out players of United's season so far.
After scoring the winner, Rashford received praise from manager Erik ten Hag.
The Dutchman said: “The team was creating some chances.
“Rashy had some chances before. And he missed some but he kept his belief, he kept trying and got his reward. All good strikers know that not every chance you will get a goal but at this level, you don’t create five or six chances in a game so one of the two has to be in.
“It tells you something about the team’s performance. It tells you something about him. If he keeps the focus and makes sure he has the energy, the way, and the way he has to play in that system and style, he will get in scoring positions and then it’s about him - he has the ability to finish.”
Next up for United in the Europa League will be yet another Spanish side, in the shape of former champions Sevilla.
