Bruno Fernandes’ Hilarious Reaction To Finding Out He Will Captain Man United For PSG Clash

Bruno Fernandes’ Hilarious Reaction To Finding Out He Will Captain Man United For PSG Clash

Bruno Fernandes went from complete shock to boasting a cheeky smile after finding out that he would captain Manchester United in the absence of Harry Maguire.

Maguire, 27, pulled back an important equaliser for the Red Devils in their 4-1 comeback victory against Newcastle on Saturday.

But the England international has been ruled out of United's first Champions League clash of the season against Paris Saint-Germain due to injury.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held his pre-match press conference on Monday alongside Fernandes, who has been in sensational form since his arrival in January.

The 26-year-old Portuguese midfielder was left stunned when Solskjaer revealed that he would be United skipper for the PSG clash at the Parc des Princes.

However, Fernandes' reaction would change to immediate delight as he flicked his eyebrows while giving a cheeky smile during the press conference.

"The captain sits next to me. Bruno will captain the team tomorrow," Solskjaer said.

"Bruno has definitely come in and had a great positive impact. The stats show that and his performances have been receiving great praise as well.

"He has come in and if not changed the team he's sparked something in the team and I hope we've sparked something in his career.

"That was a turning point in our season last season and we hope from more to come."
