New Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has revealed why he shushed Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola when both teams met last week.
Towards the end of the game that United won 2-0, Bruno was snapped by cameras shushing Guardiola and according to the Portuguese, the former Barcelona man didn’t show him respect.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Bruno said: “You know, some people think: ‘Pep won everything, who is Bruno to diss him?’, but it’s about respect.
“I probably don’t do this again if I am on the pitch now. But, at that moment the words he told me made me mad, and on the pitch, I am a little bit nervous, it is the kind of player I am.
“I have respect for Pep and what he won, and what he did for football because he changed some mentalities in football. At that moment he didn’t respect me and so he didn’t deserve my respect at that moment on the pitch.
“But for me, it doesn’t matter. What goes on in the pitch, out of it, for me, it’s past.”
Bruno has been a breath of fresh air to the United with the team yet to lose since he joined them in January; the player providing three assists and scoring two goals in the five league games he has featured in for United.
