Bruno did not ask for a substitution, escaped the 11-match ban despite pushing the referee

Erik ten Hag was pleased the Manchester United captain did not ask to be substituted in Sunday’s defeat to Liverpool. Bruno Fernandes will not receive an 11-match ban.


After Man United’s humiliating defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, much of the criticism was directed at captain Bruno Fernandes – who is said to have asked to be taken off in the final minutes of the game, when Ten Hag decided to leave the pitch. Marcus Rashford is off to make room for Antony Elanga.


Man United legend Gary Neville criticized Fernandes’ attitude: “Bruno Fernandes standing in the center circle with his arms raised sᴀʏɪɴɢ why can’t I be substituted?. Honestly, I have to sᴀʏ that some of his gestures in the second half were a disgrace.”


“The second half of Man United was an absolute disgrace, chaos, I no longer see the exemplary captain Bruno Fernandes. Sometimes he is brilliant thanks to the assists and the goals. But against Liverpool, he played an embarrassing game,” added the former Man United captain.

Bruno and his teammates had a day to forget at Anfield.


However, the new moves released by ESPN show that Bruno has no action to ask for a substitute. The Portuguese player’s gesture only implies which position he will play after Elanga enters the field. In addition, sources also told ESPN that Fernandes will not face punishment for pushing assistant referee Adam Nunn in the second half.


The Football Association will not review the case as it was believed to have been handled by match officials at the time.


Sources told ESPN that after a crushing defeat to Liverpool, Ten Hag arrived at Man United’s Carrington training ground at 7 am on Monday.

Bruno collided with referee Adam Nunn.


Referee Andy Madley and his assistants witnessed Fernandes’ nudge. But they don’t consider it serious enough to be included in the report. This means the case will be left alone, and the Man United captain will not receive a penalty.


Earlier, Man United and Crystal Palace had to face a penalty from the FA after letting players ꜰɪɢʜᴛ. Both teams were fined £55,000. Even Man United lost Casemiro in the next 3 matches for strangling Will Hughes of the away team.

Casemiro received a three-match ban from the FA.


The FA also sent a written request to clubs to remind players to control their behavior during the match. This FA rule is to ensure that the players will not have any influence on the referee team. If any action beyond the limit of the player is recorded by the match officials in the minutes, the player (and the host team) may be fined by the FA.


The ꜰᴀᴄᴛ, that Bruno Fernandes was not penalized made Man United able to breathe a sigh of relief. They will enter a harsh schedule ahead and losing the Portuguese captain will be a huge loss.
