Manchester United is still in turmoil despite the win. New captain Bruno Fernandes has been criticized by legends who have played for the team. Even after Fernandes scored the game-winning goal, he was criticized. This time, goalkeeper David De Gea, who played alongside him during the offseason and is currently rumored to be returning to the team, took a shot at Fernandez, calling him “not a suitable captain.레모나토토 도메인
“De Gea insisted that Fernandez should not wear the captain’s armband,” the Daily Mail reported on May 5 (ET). This echoes the criticisms of Roy Keane, who recently made the same claim. Keane lashed out at Fernandez after the 10th round EPL match of the 2023-2024 season against Manchester City at Old Trafford in Manchester, England, on March 30. United lost 0-3 to the Red Devils, and Keane told Sky Sports, “Fernandes doesn’t deserve to be captain. After today’s performance, I would have taken the captain’s armband away from Fernandes. He was whining, moaning and constantly flailing his arms in the air throughout the game.”
About a week has passed since then. Fernandez has gone from being criticized by Keane to being the hero of the team’s winless streak. On April 4, Fernandez scored the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in London in the 11th round of the EPL, snapping a two-game losing streak. Fernandez scored the winner in second-half stoppage time, beating the defense with a superb individual effort. It was Fernandez’s response to Keane’s criticism.
But that didn’t stop the criticism, as De Gea took to social media to criticize Fernandez. His comments echoed Keane’s. “You’re not a fit captain,” De Gea wrote. “You’re not a valid argument,” he wrote.
