Man Utd duo Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro in heated argument
Manchester United star Casemiro was seen raging at Bruno Fernandes before the Red Devils collected their medals after beating Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final. The Brazilian appeared to still be unhappy with his midfield colleague after Fernandes failed to set up a third United goal in the closing stages of the game.
Two goals in the first half saw Erik ten Hag’s side past Newcastle in what turned out to be a relatively easy victory. But Casemiro was not completely happy after winning his first trophy since his £70million summer move from Real Madrid.
Broadcast shots cut to Fernandes celebrating with Scott McTominay just before the players collected their winners’ medals. Casemiro could then be seen coming into the shot before grabbing Fernandes to remonstrate with the Portugal international.
The 30-year-old pulled Fernandes’ arm and pointed to the other side of the Wembley pitch. It suggests he was still unhappy with Fernandes’ failure to set up Marcus Rashford to score a third goal.
In the final minutes of the game, United broke away on the counter-attack and Fernandes had the ball on the right wing. The 28-year-old could have slipped Rashford through on goal but instead opted to take on his marker.
Fernandes’ eventual shot was saved by Newcastle goalkeeper Loris Karius. A frustrated Rashford gestured as if to ask why the obvious pass had not arrived.
Despite United’s win, Casemiro had clearly not forgotten the incident. He seemed genuinely annoyed as he complained to Fernandes, frantically gesticulating to the stand-in captain.
Any genuine tension soon evaporated, with McTominay smiling as the trio walked off the pitch. Casemiro had enjoyed an excellent first cup final in England, scoring the opening goal as United won a trophy for the first time since 2017.
Casemiro beat Newcastle’s offside trap to head home Luke Shaw’s free kick in the first half. Soon after, Rashford raced through and his shot looped over Karius after taking a deflection off Sven Botman.
