Bruno Fernandes explains his Manchester United goal celebration against Aston Villa

April 30, 2023

Man Utd defeated Aston Villa in the Premier League meeting at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Bruno Fernandes has joked that Aston Villa fans must be sick of the sight of him after he netted the winner for Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

The Portuguese playmaker scored the only goal of the game when he pounced on a spilled shot in the box and fired in from a tight angle to give his side another precious three points.

He got revenge when he scored the goal though, and savoured the moment by celebrating in front of the away end by staring out the Villa fans.

Speaking after the game, he was asked about the celebration and the feisty reception he got from the travelling supporters.

Obviously they probably don’t like to play against me, but it is what it is, it’s football,” he told MUTV. “I’m OK with that. They can enjoy the game in the way they want.

A ‘Love United Hate Glazer’ banner was unfurled and a bedsheet that read ‘Full sale Glazers out’ was affixed to a railing. “There’s only one Joel Glazer,” taunted the Villa followers, the only time the absentee landlord has had a good word aired about him inside Old Trafford.

The vacant seats were not glaringly obvious. There was the other side to late arrivals. One man, sporting a half-and-half scarf, staggered up the turnstiles, oblivious to where he was sat long.
