Bruno Fernades unhappy with fan picking Mohamed Salah over him in Fantasy League

Bruno Fernades unhappy with fan picking Mohamed Salah over him in Fantasy League

A video of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes involved in a light-hearted exchange with a fan after the game against Arsenal has emerged.

The Portuguese midfielder had a huge part in United’s 3-2 victory over their fierce rival, scoring an equalizer right before the end of the first half at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo’s goal after the restart was cancelled out by Martin Odegaard, who scored minutes later to make it 2-2. However, Ronaldo gave United the lead again with an emphatic 70th-minute spot-kick.

Ronaldo’s record-breaking brace on the night saw United earn three crucial points, propelling them seventh in the Premier League Table.

Alongside Ronaldo, Fernandes has been one of the only few consistent players for United this season and is expected to be a key player under newly appointed interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

But the Portuguese midfielder appeared less than pleased when a fan told him he’d left him out of his FPL team for Mohamed Salah.

In the short clip that has gone viral on Twitter now, Fernandes is seen in his car exchanging a few words with the fan while waiting at a traffic light.

The passenger on the car began by saying he doesn’t have the United midfielder in his fantasy team. Fernandes responded by asking who he had instead.

The fan replied: “Mohamed Salah all the way, man. I’m sorry, he takes up all my money!”

Suffice to say, Fernandes wasn’t amused and immediately scoffed at the fan’s discretion before driving off.

“You saw him yesterday! You saw him yesterday! Come on, Bruno!” the passenger added at the end, referring to Salah’s scintillant brace against Everton at Goodison.

But by then, the United star was long gone. However, the fan in question later took to social media and tweeted: “I’m sorry, @B_Fernandes8, I’ll transfer you in right now.”
