Bruno Fernandes and Victor Lindelof Fights After Sevilla Second Goal (Video)

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes was seen shouting at Victor Lindelof following Luuk de Jong’s late goal for Sevilla in the Europa League semi-final. Fernandes was clearly unhappy with the defending but Lindelof shouted back at his team-mate.

The Portuguese clearly felt the Sweden international was at fault for losing his man..



It left Sevilla in the lead as they booked their place in the Europa League final next Friday.

That was after United had been 1-0 up in the opening 10 minutes after Fernandes had converted a penalty.

Their Spanish opponents did equalise through Suso who snuck in at the backpost behind Brandon Williams.


Former Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock had his say on the defending for the de Jong goal but felt Aaron Wan-Bissaka was the man most at fault.

He said to BBC Sport: “It’s Manchester United switching off.

“Brandon Williams doesn’t see Jesus Navas get in behind him and the ball is quite outstanding from Navas.

“Aaron Wan-Bissaka switches off at the back post. It’s poor from United again.”




Paul Scholes and Robbie Savage both agreed that Lindelof was at fault as Sevilla shocked United.

After seeing it again Warnock also slammed the centre-back for his role in giving away the goal.

He added: “I look at Victor Lindelof for the second goal. Not once does he look over his shoulder.

“There seems to be a clear lack of communication across that back line. Bruno Fernandes was furious with Lindelof.

“The problem for defenders is you get punished for it – whereas the strikers don’t.”


It is the third time United have lost in a semi-final this season.

Scholes couldn’t believe the defending he saw from Lindelof.

He said on BT Sport: “He’s got to defend the middle of his goal, he’s a centre-half.

“His body angle is all wrong.”

United’s season finally ends with the defeat to Sevilla and they will now turn their attention to the transfer window.
