A footage and photo of Bruno Fernandes appearing to confront Victor Lindelof for laxity at the back that led to Sevilla scoring the winner against Man United has emerged.
Man United's impressive Europa League campaign came to a dramatic halt following their 2-1 defeat in the hands of the Spanish team.
United came into the match with hope of getting the perfect revenge over the La Liga side who also eliminated from the Champions League back in 2018 under then boss Jose Mourinho.
Sevilla staged a dramatic comeback to stun United on Sunday night, August 16, in Cologne to book a place in Europa League finals.
This was despite netting an early opener through Fernandes, but the Spanish side hit back in either half through Suso and Luuk De Jong to said through.
The Red Devils had started the second half aggressively and were twice denied by Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou.
The La Liga giants managed to weather the storm in the final minutes of the match, before they bagged the winner in the 78th minute through De Jong who scored from close range.
The former Newcastle United loanee drifted in between Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka to beat David de Gea who was in goal.
And Fernandes could be seen clearly furious with United's lax defending and even confronted Lindelof who was largely at fault.
But Lindelof seemed unimpressed with the midfielder's criticism as he shook his head in disagreement.
When asked after the match what the mood was like in the dressing room, Harry Maguire admitted the boys were devastated.
