Bruno Fernandes could be at risk of a big fan after being spotted pushing a match official in Manchester United’s 7-0 defeat away to Liverpool yesterday.
The Red Devils were absolutely humiliated in Sunday’s big game, suffering what will surely go down as one of the most embarrassing results in their history.
Liverpool ran riot and punished a sloppy display from Erik ten Hag’s side, but Fernandes’ behaviour also left plenty to be desired as he came across as stroppy and petulant as the game got away from Man Utd.
The Portugal international is a fine player when he’s at the top of his game, but he let himself down at Anfield, with the Daily Mirror reporting on calls for him to be given a five-game ban for shoving an assistant referee.
Ref Support UK chief executive Martin Cassidy told the Mirror: “Just like someone doing a Ronaldo celebration or a Cruyff turn, children will mimic what they see on TV. We’re talking about a world class official being pushed in the back here.
