Furious Bruno Fernandes was FUMING with the Referee Michael Oliver following Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to Fulham at Old Trafford! After Rough Decision that favoured Fullham🤬.

Bruno Fernandes was spotted fighting with referee Michael Oliver during Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to Fulham.

United fell behind in the 65th minute when Calvin Bassey scored, but Harry Maguire appeared to have saved a point in the final minute of normal time. Alex Iwobi scored a stunning winner for Fulham in the seventh minute of injury time to secure a remarkable victory for the visitors.

As the dust settled, Fernandes was spotted having an impassioned conversation with Oliver. The United skipper appeared upset as he spoke briefly with Oliver and his players in front of Erik ten Hag before storming off in rage.

Despite Fernandes’ obvious displeasure with the umpires, Ten Hag had no concerns about the officiating when he spoke with BBC Sport following the match. Instead, the Dutchman lamented his team’s error that led to Iwobi’s last-gasp goal.

He stated, “It was a throw-in [for Fulham] in the corner; we had them under pressure, and we had one man in the incorrect place. As a team, we should manage this and ensure that everyone is in the proper position. We let them escape, which is avoidable.

“The players had great character in fighting back; we deserved the equaliser and went for the win; we showed a lot of attitude. It was a mistake. Before that, we went for the win, and we should have capitalised on our opportunities.”

The setback has significantly harmed Manchester United’s chances of qualifying for Europe next season, leaving them eight points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa. An honest Harry Maguire admitted after the game that United just did not do enough to win.

After Manchester United’s Premier League match against Fulham, captain Bruno Fernandes spoke with match officials

He stated, “Overall, on the balance of play, we did not accomplish enough in the opening 60 minutes or so; we did not start the game well. The first half was very level, but when you’re not playing at your best, you need to do the basics right, and set pieces are part of that.

“We thought they would pose a threat from those areas, and they scored early in the second, which is unfortunate. To be a goal behind, I thought our recovery was outstanding, especially in the closing 30 minutes, and when we equalised, it was likely that only one team would win.

“We were probably naive in the end, putting too many bodies forward and getting annihilated on the counterattack.” We’ve been on a nice run of form, so we were confident heading into the game.”
