United legend and pundit Roy Keane wants Bruno Fernandes to be stripped off the United’s captaincy after 3:0 defeat in Manchester Derby.
After the game, both Jamie Carragher and Roy Keane insisted that Fernandes was not a good choice for the armband at Old Trafford. The Portuguese international lacks leadership qualities at the middle of the pitch.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Jamie Carragher said :-
“A big decision Erik ten Hag has made is who he has made captain.
“Bruno Fernandes should not be a captain – we’re sat here with two Manchester United captains [Keane and Gary Neville].”
Roy Keane intervened Jamie Carragher and said :-
“The first thing I would do – I have to tell you, watching him again – I would definitely take the captaincy off him. 100 per cent.
“I know it’s a big decision. Obviously, they changed the captaincy with Harry Maguire [but] Bruno Fernandes is not captain material.
“I think he’s a talented player, no doubt about it, but what we saw today with him again – I know we’ve discussed this many times before, it was at Liverpool last year – is his winging, his moaning, his throwing his arms up in the air constantly.
“It really isn’t acceptable. After what we saw today I’m thinking I would take that off him.
“You have to start somewhere. You’re thinking, ‘Where do you make changes’. You’re talking board level, managers… I would start with that because the manager is capable of doing that.
“Fernandes is a brilliant footballer, but in terms of captain material, he’s the opposite of what I would want in a captain.”
