You’re a joke – Souness blasts Fernandes after Man Utd’s 2-0 defeat to Man City


Former Liverpool player, Graeme Souness, has slammed Bruno Fernandes as a ‘joke’ following the Red Devils’ Premier League 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

Souness said Fernandes neglected the ‘fundamentals’ in the build-up to Man City’s first goal.

Man City defeated Man United at Old Trafford following an own-goal from Eric Bailly and a goal from Bernardo Silva.

“Watch Fernandes here. ‘Why don’t you cross the ball here I’m not going to close you down,” Souness told Sky Sports.

“It’s a simple thing, but it’s a fundamental thing, stop the crosses. Stop the crosses, do your mates in the middle of the goal a favour by putting the ball under pressure to stop the cross.

“That is a joke and the second goal is brought about by people doing the same thing and not doing the fundamental things.”

Man United’s next Premier League match is against Watford on Nov. 20 after the international break
