In a recent match against Brentford, Manchester United’s goalkeeper, David de Gea, required medical attention after making a fantastic save. As the physios rushed to attend to him, the United captain for the night, Bruno Fernandes, joined them. However, instead of checking on the welfare of his teammate, Fernandes began kicking De Gea while he lay on the ground.

The incident was caught on camera and quickly spread on social media, with many United fans finding Fernandes’ behavior hilarious. Fans on social media reacted with amusement to the incident, with one commenting that “Bruno is such a good friend,” and another stating that “Watching it on telly last night, I thought I had imagined it! Only Bruno!”.
De Gea recently turned down a new contract offer from United, which has fueled speculation about his future with the club. His current deal is set to expire in the summer, and United has reportedly identified Brentford’s David Raya as a potential replacement. However, Raya is also attracting interest from Tottenham and La Liga clubs, which could make a transfer challenging.
In conclusion, the incident between Fernandes and De Gea has left United fans amused and provided a moment of levity during a tense match. However, the uncertainty surrounding De Gea’s future has highlighted the need for United to secure a reliable replacement for their star goalkeeper.
