Gary Neville unhappy after Bruno Fernandes penalty miss apology

Bruno Fernandes, Six Sports

Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville takes a dig at Bruno Fernandes for his penalty miss apology. He termed the whole situation as “embarrassing“.

Neville is of the opinion that players should not apologise for missing penalties.

This event takes place after the midfielder’s social media essay following his failed effort to convert a spot-kick against Aston Villa.

Bruno Fernandes unlucky from the spot

Villa defender Kourtney Hause broke the deadlock after 88 minutes, heading past De Gea from a corner. A few minutes later, the Red Devils were gifted a golden opportunity to level the tie.

Fernandes stepped up to take his 23rd penalty in a United shirt in the final minutes of the game.

The Portuguese playmaker had only missed once from the spot from his previous 22 attempts. However, this time he was lucky as his latest effort went flying over the crossbar.

This ultimately cost his team a valuable point, which he acknowledged in a post to his followers online.

In response to Fernandes’ apology, the former England international wrote: “It’s embarrassing! They need to sack their PR people, speak with some authenticity and get on with it.

I’m going to go big on this in the next few weeks. They’ve all got these comms managers, that are creating personalities that don’t exist!

Bruno Fernandes will be looking to bounce back immediately in Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Villarreal.
