I am the captain, and I am aware of when things are not going as planned. What he did yesterday is deserving of a bench. Yesterday, during the match against Aston Villa, the captain of Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes, was left feeling extremely unhappy with one of his teammates. To tell you the truth, to be completely honest, that player truly deserved whatever punishment is going to be coming his way in the near future. ‍♂️

Erik ten Hag’s coached team displayed remarkable prowess at Villa Park, securing a victory at a venue that has posed challenges for many teams this season. Despite the loss, the team’s performance was notably commendable. While Unai Emery’s squad has experienced a slight dip in form after a strong start to the season, ten Hag’s side seems to be on an upward trajectory.


The match against Villa showcased several positive elements for United, including the consistent performance of players like Alejandro Garnacho and Rasmus Hojlund, who demonstrated both skill and composure by adding another goal to his tally. Although Harry Maguire made a significant impact with an assist for Hojlund’s goal, Bruno Fernandes expressed dissatisfaction with Maguire’s decision during a crucial moment in the game.


During a Sky Sports broadcast, Maguire seemed to miss a clear opportunity in the 61st minute, frustrating Fernandes and viewers alike. Despite United’s 1-0 lead at the time, Fernandes delivered a superb cross into the box for Maguire, who opted not to pursue the chance, much to Fernandes’ chagrin. While Fernandes believed Maguire could have reached the ball, there may have been mitigating factors influencing Maguire’s decision.


Fernandes’ frustration likely stemmed from the realization that United needed another goal to secure three points against a formidable Villa side, a point underscored when Villa equalized shortly after the missed opportunity. However, Scott McTominay’s goal ultimately sealed United’s victory. Despite Luke Shaw’s halftime substitution, potentially due to injury, the overall performance suggests a foundation for United to build upon.


In addition to their triumph, Andre Onana recently praised a former United player’s talent, highlighting the club’s ongoing impact on the footballing world.
