Bruno Fernandes commands Manchester United flops to clap for away fans after humiliating defeat to Newcastle United

After Manchester United’s defeat at Newcastle, Bruno Fernandes was seen ordering his teammates to applaud the visiting supporters.

Manchester United’s chances of qualifying in the top four were dashed on Sunday as they were defeated 2-0 by Newcastle United. After earning a single point in the last three games, they now lie fourth in the standings, equal on points with the Magpies in third.

The game started well for Newcastle when Joe Willock opened the scoring in the 65th minute. He was assisted from close range by Allan Saint-Maximin who had received a wonderful cross from Bruno Guimarães. A goal from substitute Callum Wilson then sealed the game in the 88th minute with a wonderful header from a Kieran Trippier free kick.

United had a miserable afternoon overall, with many supporters questioning Erik Ten Hag’s choice to leave out Fred. Lisandro Martinez was observed punching the dugout after being substituted, worsening reactions. But the rage did not stop there, as Sky Sports cameras captured right-back Diogo Dalot arguing with attacker Antony, who had been substituted near the end of the match.

Why did Bruno Fernandes yell at his teammates?

Following the final whistle for full-time, several devastated United players began to trudge directly toward the tunnel. However, Bruno Fernandes was seen yelling at his teammates. And he told them to follow him and appreciate the away support.

As he stood in the center circle, he yelled at Rashford, Martial, and youngster Facundo Pellistri to acknowledge the visiting United supporters. While Pellistri paid attention to Bruno, Rashford, and Martial were heading down the passageway. The footage, shot by the Daily Mail, shows Fernandes being enraged at his colleagues.

Bruno Fernandes has been the team’s de facto leader since club captain Harry Maguire no longer has a guaranteed spot in the starting lineup. Bruno also leads through example on the pitch and is seen as a proper leader in the dressing room. He has been vocal both on and off the pitch and demonstrated passion numerous times. He has earned the praise of many former United legends.

While the Red Devils were hoping to challenge for the Premier League title just a few weeks ago, they don’t have much time to mope. They must now end in the top four to progress to next season’s Champions League.

They also play Sevilla in a Europa League quarter-final over two games. And an FA Cup semi-final against Brighton before the end of the month. United must pick itself up and move on from the recent troubles as soon as possible.

Manchester United next faces Brentford at Old Trafford on Thursday. They will hope to gain a victory to keep alive their top-four race.
