Bruno Fernandes deletes Twitter post amid PR error following Man United defeat

Manchester United attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes was forced to delete a post from his Twitter account on Saturday evening after committing a glaring mistake.

His PR team accidentally uploaded a post that was meant for the Twitter account of Arsenal attacker Gabriel Martinelli.

The mistake came just hours after United suffered their fourth Premier League defeat in their last six matches on Saturday lunchtime, going down 2-0 to cross-city rivals Manchester City, who made light work of their opponents.

Fernandes apologised for the performance in an interview after the City defeat, but saw those responsible for his social media accounts commit a big mistake.

The post that was meant for Gabriel Martinelli’s Twitter account. (Image: Twitter.) They uploaded a photo to his account of Arsenal ace Martinelli, alongside some of his team-mates, celebrating in training ahead of the Gunners’ clash with Watford on Sunday, with the caption: ‘Gooood vibes’.

The post was quickly deleted, but it was too late for it to go unnoticed, with a huge number of United fans spotting the error. It later appeared on Martinelli’s account.

As expected, especially following defeat in the Manchester derby, United’s fans were less than impressed with the post, with many of them responding unhappily to the Portuguese player.

Following the full-time whistle at Old Trafford, Portuguese ace Fernandes admitted that United’s players need to look to themselves when it comes to identifying the cause of their current problems.

“Obviously everyone is frustrated about the result, about the performance too,” Fernandes told Sky Sports.

“We know we can do much better and we know this is not enough for a player who is representing this big club. We have to look at the mirror. I’m saying again the same things probably from the last interview, but that’s it.

“We have to look at ourselves, everyone at his home, understand what they can do better to help the team.

“We just have to apologise to the fans and that’s it, because it was not good enough from us.

“Great atmosphere they create. They pushed us until the end, they tried to give that energy to us but from us, it was not enough.”
