Bruno Fernandes has demanded an apology from the referee Michael Oliver after the Red Devils were denied a penalty in the first half against Tottenham on August 19, 2023.
Manchester United felt aggrieved after Cristian Romero’s hand blocked Alejandro Garnacho’s attempt in the 26th minute.
The angry captain Bruno Fernandes protested against the referee’s decision and was awarded a yellow card.
During the post-match interview, Bruno Fernandes compared the incident that happened against Wolves to the Manchester United incident where Andre Onana clashed with Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic in the stoppage time.
Bruno Fernandes requests for an apology
Bruno Fernandes said “Last week they made a big thing on United not having a penalty against Wolverhampton Wanderers.”
“I want to see what’s going to happen this week if it’s going to happen the same show they did last week.
“I want to see if Jon Moss also comes to apologise to our dressing room like they said he did to the manager of Wolves. I hope he’s here and can come.”
Manchester United had the opportunity to go ahead in the first half of the match, but they were outplayed in the second half by Tottenham to give Erik Ten Hag’s men their first loss of the 2023/24 season.
One of the chances was missed by the captain Bruno Fernandes, who headed the ball off target.
Roy Keane Says Manchester United Are The New Tottenham Hotspur
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane made a shocking statement about Manchester United after a horrible performance against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Irish player claims Manchester United are the new Tottenham Hotspur, and they are desperate and easy to play against.
During his pundit duty, Roy Keane said ”The biggest insult I always think about is teams who can’t do it away from home, players who aren’t up for it away from home.
“United go away today weak, no leadership, gave bad goals away. It’s easy to play against Man United. Man Utd are the new Spurs.”
He also talked about how Sir Alex Ferguson encouraged his players against Tottenham, saying, “It is only Tottenham.”
Roy Keane also criticized Marcus Rashford labeling him as a child. The legend claimed the English International was not happy playing in that position due to his body language and his first few touches.
Rashford always show his football ability at the left wing of the field. He scored more than 20 goals last season playing as a winger not as a striker. Although, the winger is playing as a striker due to the non availability of new signing Rasmus Hojlund.
However, the manager may decide to go for another line up when the team play against Nottingham Forest on August 26, 2023.
