Visiting Anfield, MU had to swallow the worst defeat in the history of participation in the Premier League and against Liverpool in an official match. MU’s most embarrassing defeat record against Liverpool before was 1-7 in October 1895.
Meanwhile, since the Premier League era, MU has never been defeated by an opponent seven goals without reply. The worst was 1-6 against noisy neighbors Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Neville, who served as a television commentator at the Liverpool vs MU match , was angry at the performance of Erik ten Hag’s team. The former MU right-back highlighted one player who performed poorly and was embarrassing in the Liverpool vs MU match, namely midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
In the Liverpool vs MU match, Bruno Fernandes acted as team captain because Harry Maguire was benched. The Portuguese man made a lot of unforced errors. What annoyed Neville the most, Fernandes even asked to be replaced when his team had conceded six goals.
“Bruno Fernandes was standing in the center circle with his hands up saying ‘Why didn’t I come off?’,” Neville said as reported by Sky Sports.
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes reacts after Liverpool scored the sixth goal during the Premier League match at Anfield stadium, England, Sunday (5/3/2023). With this defeat, Manchester United remain in third place with 49 points, 14 points behind Arsenal who are at the top.
In the embarrassing defeat at home to Liverpool, Bruno Fernandes did not make much of a contribution. Neville also highlighted the actions of the former Sampdoria player who pretended to be injured during a duel with Ibrahima Konate and Alisson Becker.
“I think some of his behavior in the second half was disgraceful. The second half was an absolute disgrace, a mess. They were not epitomized any more than Bruno Fernandes, who was a disgrace – a mess – in this game. I’ve seen him shrug enough, not run enough. It wasn’t the appearance of a captain,” insisted Neville.
I am sorry
Meanwhile, MU manager Erik Ten Hag also apologized to MU fans for this embarrassing defeat. The Dutch man promised to bring the Red Devils up in the next match.
“It’s one game, but a big loss, it’s unacceptable, especially for our fans, especially against Liverpool, but we will bounce back. The team is strong enough, we will reset ourselves, and we will bounce back,” added Ten Hag.
