Antony vs Doku clash: Not good – Ian Wright blames Man Utd captain


Arsenal legend, Ian Wright believes Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes is not setting a good example and has blamed him for Antony kicking out at Manchester City winger Jeremy Doku.

Recall that Antony escaped a red card for a clash with Doku just minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute in their recent Premier League 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville described the incident as “ridiculous and embarrassing’ and felt that Man United’s loss of discipline was directly related to captain Fernandes.

Speaking on The Kelly and Wrighty Show, alongside fellow pundits Neville and Owen Hargreaves, Wright appears to agree with Neville as he said, “He [Fernandes] does that a lot, he closes down on his own as well, that is a signal to players who you are playing with that he’s playing for the crowd, when you see people just going on their own and you don’t see anyone else backing up

“You kind of feel like he’s looking out for himself, that is what you think when someone does that.

“For you to chase off and try to close down when they’ve got good possession, especially like City or a team like that, you coming out of position pulls somebody else out of position, so actually you are easier to go through.

“To try to prove to fans that you are working hard by doing that is not a good thing.
