Manchester United attacker Bruno Fernandes has suffered a huge blow to being named the club’s permanent captain.
Fernandes has often worn the armband under Erik ten Hag this season.
While Harry Maguire is club captain, he is not a regular starter, but Fernandes’ behavior in a 7-0 loss to Liverpool at the weekend may have weakened his hand as well.
Per The Mail, there are sources at United stating that they have concerns about Fernandes’ temperament, especially in big games.
He has often shown his petulant side, getting into arguments, diving, and making rash challenges.
However, ten Hag is likely to give all his players a chance to redeem themselves after the humiliation in their coming games.
