Tension rises between Manchester United and Fulham!


By: Manu Tournoux

Manchester United’s defeat in the final seconds at Old Trafford against Fulham leaves its mark. But not the ones we imagined. In addition to the disappointment and the cumulative delay in the Premier League with a view to European places at the end of the season, the Mancunians had the unpleasant surprise of seeing a video mocking Bruno Fernandes on the Cottagers’ official TikTok account. The matter could have ended there except that it obviously got back to the ears of the main parties involved.

First there were the statements of Erik ten Hag after his team’s short but precious victory in the FA Cup on Wednesday evening at Nottingham Forest (1-0). A decisive passer for Casemiro, the Portuguese attacking midfielder was targeted by his opponents. “I don’t want to go into details because you saw that Forest were particularly targeting himdefended the Dutch coach. I’m not saying what he has but it was a major injury. Forest players committed numerous fouls on him. When he had the ball, they were always on him.

Ten Hag’s cold anger

It was after this remark that he was made aware of the famous Fulham Tiktok video, which had already been viewed more than a million times. There, the coach came off his hinges. “I didn’t know about this video and it’s not good. This is absolutely not correct. It is not right for a club to make such statements and for them to act in this way. He needs to apologize.” An anger as cold as it is understandable because according to him, this contributes to making Bruno Fernandes a victim on English pitches.

Sky Sports reveals the embarrassment this caused within Fulham. The intention was not to offend a player, regularly teased by his opponents. For Ten Hag, this is unacceptable. “You see the opponents targeting him, especially on Saturday, when he took a hit and they see it. I also think that the referees should protect him. Major player and captain of Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes risks seeing his reputation take another blow. Despite himself, he caused a conflict between his club and Fulham.
