Bruno Fernandes scored Manchester United’s only goal from the penalty spot on Sunday night, August 16, during Manchester United’s 2-1 loss to La Liga outfit Sevilla in the Europa League semi-final.
Cheeky fans stormed the famous online profile page of the player to label him a professional penalty kick taker after his goal against Sevilla.
The Red Devils were awarded a penalty in the 8th minute of the showdown after Marcus Rashford was fouled in the box.
It was United’s 22nd penalty of the season which Fernandes slotted home bringing back his trademark hop to lash the ball into the back of the net.
That was also Fernandes’ eight penalty kick for the Red Devils since his arrival at the Premier League club and unknown persons went on to tweak his profile on Wikipedia.
The edited entry, as cited in The Sun, reads: “Bruno Miguel Borges Fernandes, born 8 September 1994, is a Portuguese professional penalty kick taker who plays as a penalty kick taker for Premier League club Manchester United and the Portugal national team.”
Meanwhile, 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.
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.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Man United has hit their all-time low in terms of winning trophies following their painful Europa League exit at the hands of Spanish side Sevilla.
And it is the first time United have gone without a trophy for three straight years in the last 31 years.
This means that since Sir Alex Ferguson took over at the helm at Old Trafford in 1986, United have at least won a trophy in between three seasons.
But the club's last trophy was when former manager Jose Mourinho won the Europa League in 2017 and as well winning the Community Sheild the same year.
