Bruno Fernandes fumed at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he was taken off during Manchester United’s goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield. The Portugal international was far from his best and was replaced by Mason Greenwood just before full-time.
Fernandes was surprised to see his number on the fourth official’s board with just one minute of normal time remaining.
Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum tried to hurry the United star off the pitch so the match could continue.
There was a slight delay as Scott McTominay was receiving treatment and Solskjaer had to consider whether to take the Scot off instead.
Once the physio gave the green light for McTominay to continue, Fernandes was hauled off.
And he resented the decision by venting his frustration.
Sky Sports cameras captured the 26-year-old shouting in the direction of his manager.
He then slumped in his pitch-side chair and sulked while watching the remainder of the match.
After the match Solskjaer admitted that he was not happy with the performance of some of his players.
“It’s only a good result if we win the next game,” he said.
“Fair play to them – with two central midfielders at the back and to defend as well as they did shows their quality.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “If we won 1-0 I’d think it was completely fine. You can’t deny Manchester United chances for 90 minutes. You never could. They’re in a good moment.
“With all the things said before the game – they’re flying and we’re struggling – my boys did a good game tonight.
“First half the counter-press was great, passing was good. But we didn’t score. That’s the most important thing in football.
“The second half was a bit more open. They had two big chances – Alisson made two good saves.”
