Bruno Fernandes and Victor Lindelof engaged in an angry altercation after the defender cost Manchester United in their Europa League semi-final against Sevilla.
The Portugal playmaker gave his side an early lead from the penalty spot but the LaLiga side equalised before half-time before an unmarked Luuk de Jong to tap the ball beyond David de Gea to compound the Red Devils to a third semi-final defeat this season.
And Fernandes, who has been a revelation since joining the club from Sporting in a 67million deal in January, was far from impressed with his teammate for his effort to stop De Jong.
Lindelof was equally angry with the midfielder’s reaction and a clip on social media appeared to show the Swede calling him a ‘son of a b****” in Portuguese.
You can have a look a clip of the incident, below….
Fernandes’ spot-kick had United dreaming of the August 21 finale, only for former Liverpool man Suso to level and ex-Newcastle striker De Jong to secure Europa League kings Sevilla a 2-1 comeback win in a pulsating clash.
The Red Devils’ despair was clear at the final whistle and they will be kicking themselves for a long time to come, having let this semi-final go the same way as their FA Cup and Carabao Cup campaigns.
Fernandes fired United ahead just eight minutes in from their 22nd penalty of the season but Suso levelled after catching the defence napping in a first half in which Diego Carlos could have seen red and conceded another penalty.
United made a blistering start to the second period but goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, whose penalty save was key in the quarter-final win against Wolves, made a string of superb saves to keep his side in the tie.
It provided Sevilla with the platform to grab victory and secure a place in the Cologne final, with substitute De Jong all too easily allowed to turn home Jesus Navas’ cross to secure a shot at glory against Inter Milan or Shakhtar Donetsk.
