Bruno Fernandes vents after Man United's 7-0 annihilation at Anfield

‘It’s a really bad result’: Bruno Fernandes vents his frustration after Manchester United’s 7-0 annihilation at Anfield – but issues rallying cry to his team-mates insisting ‘we’ve had setbacks before’ as they seek a cup treble this season

Bruno Fernandes could not hide his disappointment at full-time after Liverpool imposed a 7-0 defeat on Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

Captain Fernandes was one of United’s worst performers as he appeared to spend more time complaining than trying to get his team back into the match and was additionally criticised by Gary Neville for his behaviour.

Fernandes fronted up in a post-match interview and told Sky Sports that Liverpool’s defeat was a ‘really bad result’ for him and his team-mates to take. 

‘It’s frustrating. It’s a really bad result, we came here with a different mindset. The first half was really good, we controlled most of it, the second half was nit at our level,’ said Fernandes.

‘We give too much space away. We know what a threat they are. It was not our level. We know we can be better. Its just about going to the next game.

‘The team tries to react but we lost a bit of balance and control. We gave too much space to a team that is strong on the counter. The games our coming quick.

‘We know this team is really good and can do really good things. We have set a really good standard for ourselves, now its just about getting back to that. 

‘We are still in the Europa League and A Cup, we have to get back on track. We are in the hunt to win the next game against [Real] Betis. We have to go game by game,’ added the Portuguese.

Fernandes has been one of United’s leaders this season but seemed to lack all the leadership skills of a captain in his side’s biggest hammering of the season.

The 28-year-old missed his side’s biggest chance of the first-half, sending a header wide from close-range in the 26th minute, with United barely getting another sniff on goal throughout.

Fernandes and his team-mates missed the chance to record a first league double over Liverpool in seven years and will have to bounce back quick with Real Betis meeting them at Old Trafford on Thursday in a Europa League round of 16 encounter.

However, despite being gracious in front of the cameras after defeat, Fernandes didn’t escape the criticism of ex-Man United duo Roy Keane and Gary Neville.

Keane slammed the Portuguese for having ‘disgraceful’ body language, while Neville also used the same term when describing the attackers behaviour.
