Bruno Fernandes endured further humiliation after Manchester United’s derby defeat to Manchester City after his PR team accidentally posted a message which was meant for Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side registered another uninspiring display at Old Trafford as an own goal from Eric Bailly and Bernardo Silva’s close-range effort sealed a comfortable 2-0 win for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Fernandes issued an apology to United fans in his post-match interview but the Portugal international was at the centre of a major PR error just hours after his side’s loss.

On Saturday evening, Fernandes’ official social media accounts posted a picture of Martinelli celebrating in training with his Arsenal teammates along with the caption: ‘Gooood vibes’.

The post was subsequently deleted but not before several United fans spotted the error and directed their frustration towards Fernandes.

The same social media post was then published on Martinelli’s Instagram and Twitter pages.

Speaking after United’s derby defeat, Fernandes admitted he and his teammates are being bailed out by David De Gea’s saves.

‘It’s always a bad time to concede a goal but the problem is the way we concede goals. It’s too easy,’ Fernandes told MUTV.

‘As I said, many, many times, if not for David, the result could be much higher and worse for us.

‘We have to protect David better. Because he is protecting us a lot and we have to help him. He cannot make, every game, eight [or] nine saves and still concede goals.

‘We just have to apologise to the fans and that’s it,” our no.18 added. “It was not good enough from us.

‘It was a great atmosphere they created and they pushed us until the end.

‘They gave that energy to us but, from us, it was not enough.’
