Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has rejected the recent rumours that Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was unsettled at the club.
According to an exclusive report by Fabrizio Romano on Caught Offside, the revered transfer news guru ruled out any claims surrounding Bruno Fernandes’ future at Manchester United. The Portuguese-born midfielder has become a crucial player for Erik Ten Hag’s rejuvenated Man United side this season and he is still respected well among the club. Romano claimed:
"“There’s been a story about Bruno Fernandes angering some of his teammates with his behaviour against Liverpool, with some questioning if he’s the right choice to wear the captain’s armband. I’m not aware of this, honestly,”"
During the debacle against Liverpool at Anfield this week, Bruno Fernandes wore the captain’s armband and it backfired hugely after he showed a lack of character in the match proceedings. News outlets like Mail came up with certain rumours that the 28-year-old had squandered the chance to become a long-term captain for the club. It was one of the off days for Manchester United, who have otherwise experienced a perfect run since the return of club football from the World Cup.
Bruno Fernandes remains a popular and crucial figure in the club and the blame of the Liverpool match seems like unjustifiably being put over the captain that day. The team as a whole showed inconsistency and while they had the opportunity to bounce back after conceding the goal late in the first half, the visitors couldn’t as Liverpool were a far better side.
"“My understanding is that Bruno has always been super appreciated internally at Man United and I don’t think one game can change the reputation of a player who was lifting a trophy just ten days ago."
Like Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United fans who have been angered by Fernandes’ performances on that fateful must remember what a wonderful player he is, has been and will be for the time to come.
Do you think Bruno Fernandes can become an able caption to head this Manchester United side in the future?
