Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes was forced to delete a social media post that accidentally depicted a group of Arsenal players. In what appeared to be a mistake from his PR team, a number of Red Devils fans were quick off the mark to save the photo in what came across as an embarrassing gaffe for the Portuguese midfielder. 

Fernandes struggled to find any joy whatsoever against Manchester City on Saturday as United sunk to a 2-0 defeat. 

Pep Guardiola’s side were far superior, and the Red Devils head into the international break nine points off the Premier League pace. 

Questions are naturally being asked about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s future, although reports indicate that he is likely to be in charge when domestic action resumes. 

Fans were audibly frustrated at their poor showing on Saturday, however, and many stayed until the final whistle to boo the performance.

Fernandes’ social media mishap will have only angered them even further, considering many of the players have been criticised for their social media actions of late. 

The 27-year-old’s PR team accidentally uploaded a picture of five Arsenal stars, including young forward Gabriel Martinelli with the caption: “Gooood vibes.”

It later appeared on Martinelli’s account after being swiftly deleted by the United star. 

United fans were less than impressed in response after being left to dwell on a hugely disappointing defeat two weeks after a 5-0 mauling at home to Liverpool. 


Fernandes’ goal-scoring exploits have slowed down since the arrival of compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, having notched only four all season. 

Last campaign he lashed in 28, although things have been mightily rocky for United in recent weeks. 

After a series of mistakes both on and off the field, club legend Gary Neville was critical of the way the players had responded on social media – and Fernandes’ recent mistake will only have added fuel to the fire. 

“It’s embarrassing!” he vented. 

“They need to sack their PR people, speak with some authenticity and get on with it.

“I’m going to go big on this in the next few weeks. 

“They’ve all got these big comms managers, that are creating personalities that don’t exist!”
