Manager Man Utd Solskjaer was not happy with how Aston Villa’s players overwhelmed 27-year-old Bruno Fernandes before the midfielder missed a late penalty.


A little about the topic

Villa took home three points from a Premier League clash at Old Trafford after 88 minutes with a header from Hause. Manchester United had a chance to take a spot a few minutes later when they were awarded a penalty during the stoppage, as Kortney Hause was admitted to having handled the ball when he blocked Bruno Fernandes’ cross.


Bruno Fernandes steps forward again

The pinpoint hit was delayed as the players from both sides surrounded the penalty area and the referee, and the away side protested against the decision. Bruno changed his usual approach to free kicks, ditching his usual up-run pass and subsequently sending him floating over the bar.

Ole lamented that Villa’s players tried to shoot down the Portuguese star in his post-match interview, saying that first of all, they go around the penalty spot, around Fernandes and all that, Ole doesn’t like it, but Ole understands it, it shouldn’t be that way. Bruno Fernandes is usually very good at these positions and unfortunately just missed this one. It doesn’t hit Fernandes’ in the head, Bruno is mentally strong and he steps forward again.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added in his press conference that you would repay Bruno Fernandes with your mortgage today. according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer what he didn’t like was the way they overflowed the penalty kicks. It clearly worked for them, but it’s not that great to see. They got what they wanted. When asked if Bruno was the first choice to take the penalty, Ole replied that the decision is made before the game, yes.

Bruno’s penalty was 23rd for him for the Red Devils and only a second he conceded. The last time the midfielder failed to convert the patch was last October into a 4-1 win at Newcastle.
