Bruno Fernandes Involved In Hilarious Fantasy Football Exchange With Fan After Arsenal Game
| Last updated
The Portuguese midfielder, who celebrated his 100th appearance for the Reds with a first-half goal against Mikel Arteta's side, was stuck in traffic late on Thursday night when the passenger lowered his window.
"I don't have you in fantasy," said the supporter. "Who have you got?" Fernandes responded. Seconds later, the United man drove off in his car after hearing about Salah. This is great.
Passenger: I don't have you in fantasy
Bruno: Who have you got?
Passenger: Mohamed Salah all the way man I'm sorry he takes up all my money :moneybag:
Bruno: Ohhh nah [drives off] :red_car:
Passenger: You saw him yesterday, you saw him yesterday!

Fernandes, who has scored seven goals in 26 appearances for club and country this season, played a key role in last night's 3-2 victory against The Gunners, scoring the equaliser just before the half time break.
After the game, he said the club need to take that momentum into upcoming games.
"Every win is important for us at this moment," the 27-year-old told Amazon Prime. "We know that we have been through a lot of ups and downs, and it has been hard for us to come out of that.
"Today we got a great win, but we cannot stop here and be satisfied because we beat Arsenal. The next game is coming quick, so we have to put our heads on that straight away and be ready for that one."
Classy words :sound:

He also paid tribute to club legend Michael Carrick, who revealed he will step down as first-team coach following a spell as caretaker manager.
"I've said to him I was really mad to be off on his first game and I tell him now at the end of this game," he continued.
"But honestly for me, Michael can be a really good manager in the future if he gets that chance.
"He knows how to speak, he knows a lot of football. He was one of the great players that not a lot of people talk about. For what I have seen he can be a top coach."
