Manchester United skipper Bruno Fernandes faces an anxious wait to discover whether he’ll be suspended for tonight’s crucial final Champions League group game against Bayern Munich.
Fernandes received a late yellow card for dissent in United’s 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth on Saturday ruling him out of his side’s clash with Liverpool this weekend.
And with United’s European hopes hanging in the balance, their captain is hoping for a retrospective ban after sending UEFA a compilation of his worst antics during the group stages.
‘It’s a highlight reel of all my sh*thousing’, Fernandes told Paddy Power News.
‘Look, this is a good one of me whining at the ref when he sent off Marcus in Copenhagen. Worth a yellow, I’d say’, said the Portuguese while pointing at the video.
‘Here’s another of me taunting the Galatasaray fans in Istanbul after sticking one in the top corner. Could’ve started a riot there. Definite red for me’.
‘Shoved the lino here. Obvious red.
‘With a bit of luck, could miss the whole Europa Conference League campaign next season’, he added.
United boss Erik ten Hag admitted it’s just a waiting game now while UEFA study the footage.
‘It’s out of our handsch’, the Dutchman told Paddy Power News.
‘We hope UEFA forgives all the sh*thousing because with Bruno in the team we stand a much better chance against Bayern of keeping the score under eight
Meanwhile, Ten Hag confirmed the club sent a second video to UEFA in the hope that another of their players receives a retrospective ban.
‘As you can see from the disturbing images here, Anthony Martial jumps over the advertising hoarding and launches a Kung Fu attack on a Crystal Palace supporter’, said the former Ajax boss.
‘Ok, it’s a deepfake of the Cantona incident. But let’s hope UEFA fall for it and ban the useless t**t for life?’, he grinned.
