“Bruno is a fraud”: Fans compare Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes’ numbers to Liverpool wonderkid

Manchester United have come under a lot of criticism this season for their lack of intensity and ideas on the field and also for their lackluster performances with disastrous defending scenarios. Even after the team’s 4-2 win against Newport County on Sunday, the club has been under constant mutiny over the Rashford controversy recently.

Being the captain of the club, Bruno Fernandes has also been subsequently under criticism for not being responsible enough for the team, and now it seems the club captain is going to be mocked even more by the fans after comparisons between him and a talented Liverpool teenager arose in public.

Fans mock Bruno Fernandes after comparison with Conor Bradley

In the recent 4-1 win over Chelsea, Liverpool youngster Conor Bradley was given a start at the right-back position by manager Jurgen Klopp due to Trent’s injury concern and the young right-back took full advantage of the opportunity as he shined brightly during the whole match and was the main protagonist of the win for Liverpool yesterday.

Since then, comparisons have started arising between the Manchester United midfielder and the Liverpool right-back, which has led to fans trolling the Portuguese midfielder for his lackluster performance this season. According to the sources, Bruno has 3 assists in 20 Premier League games this season, while the young Irish right-back already has 3 assists in 2 Premier League games for Liverpool.

Fans have not been shy about commenting on the performance comparisons and have stated valid facts behind their views. While one of them just outright stated Bruno is a fraud, another fan added another pointer to the comparison that the young player is a defender while Bruno is an attacking midfielder, which just contradicts the statistics. The comparison just blows the mind of every fan for the potential that Conor Bradley can have for his future when he is already competing with Bruno Fernandes at this level.

There is no denying that Bruno is a great player who has been influential for his team in the past, having scored 71 goals and provided 59 assists for the Red Devils, but the player currently is not at all at a good moment in his career and might desperately need to turn things around if he wants to continue towards success in his career.

Conor Bradley shines for Liverpool in this PL season

The 20-year-old Northern Irish professional right-back has been displaying brilliant performances for Liverpool in the absence of injured right-back Trent Alexandre Arnold. The youngster has already provided five assists in nine matches for Liverpool, with his first goal coming yesterday in the match against Chelsea and what a wonderful goal it was.

The Liverpool academy product gave his performance of the season yesterday when he created a record of providing three goal contributions in a single Premier League match while being under 21, a record that has only been matched by his Liverpool teammate and the player whose absence made space for him in the team, Trent Alexander Arnold. The level of comparison is just surreal in the case of the younger and it is not going to be stopped any time soon

The young right-back has been performing very well in all of Liverpool’s youth setup, due to which German manager Jurgen Klopp, who announced his departure at the end of the season, gave him a chance and the player didn’t disappoint at all as the manager himself came out after yesterday’s match and heaped praise over the youngster.

The comparison between Bruno and Conor is unfair because numbers are only a small part of football but they do show the talent of the youngster and the current form of the Manchester United midfielder, which calls for decisive action by the manager.

Do you think that Conor Bradley could go on to become the next great thing in world football if he continues on this path? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
