Roy Keane slams Bruno Fernandes, urges Ten Hag to strip Portuguese of captaincy

Football legend, Roy Keane has hit hard on Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes over his poor performance against Manchester City.

Manchester City easily defeated the Red Devils 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, dominating the game from start to finish.

Bruno during the game struggled to motivate his teammates and had a poor game that led to their loss with Keane urging Erik Ten Hag to strip him of the team captaincy.

Keane said as reported by the Sun, “After today and having watched him again I would definitely take the captaincy off him. 100 per cent.

“I know it’s a big decision, obviously he changed the captaincy with [Harry] Maguire, but Fernandes is not captain material.”

“I think he’s a talented player, no doubt about it. But what I saw from him today; his whinging, his moaning, he’s throwing his arms up in the air constantly, it really isn’t acceptable.

“And what we saw today, I would take it off him. Because we’re talking about making changes, you have to start somewhere whether it’s board level, managers.

“I would start with that because the manager is capable of doing that and holding his hands up and saying ‘Listen I got it wrong’.

“In terms of captain material, he’s the opposite to what I would want in a captain.”

In the summer, Fernandes was chosen the Red Devils captain, while Maguire was benched ahead of his anticipated transfer out.

Despite the loss, United is still ranked eighth in the Premier League, while City has levelled with Arsenal and is now just two points behind league leaders Tottenham.
