Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes had an interesting interaction with Arsenal fans who picked Mohamed Salah over him in their Fantasy League.
Fernandes was on his way home after scoring a goal in United’s 3-2 victory against Mikel Arteta’s side. It was then that he pulled up next to a car carrying Arsenal fans at a traffic light. The Gooners immediately tried to get the Portuguese midfielder’s attention, chanting, “Bruno, Bruno!”
The United playmaker was in a jovial mood after his performance and indulged the fans. However, a member of the group shouted:
“I don’t have you in fantasy!”
When Fernandes asked the supporter who he had instead, they replied:
“Mohamed Salah all the way man, I’m sorry he takes up all my money! You saw him yesterday, you saw him yesterday!”
The Portuguese maestro gasped in disappointment and drove off, leaving the fans behind, although he is unlikely to take the exchange to heart:
The star bagged his 45th goal in his 100th appearance for Manchester United, bringing his tally to 79 goal involvements in total.
Bruno Fernandes might be a popular player in the Fantasy League, but Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah takes the crown for these fans.
