Bruno Fernandes Explains Why His Equalizing Goal Against City Wasn’t Disallowed

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes was one of the best players on the pitch during their 2-1 win over Manchester City at Old Trafford. Fernandez scored a controversial goal in the match to hand United their equalizer.



The Red devils made a comeback win in their clash with Manchester City thanks to a late minute goal from Marcus Rashford. Bruno Fernandes netted an equalizing goal for his side in the 78th minute to cancel out Jack Grealish’s opener. However City were furious with the decision for the goal to stand.


Casemiro made a brilliant pass to Rashford but the 25 year old forward wisely left the ball for Bruno Fernandes to run onto. Rashford distracted City defenders and Bruno Fernandes managed to find the back of the net. The VAR saw no problem with the goal but City are unhappy with the decision for the goal to stand.



Bruno Fernandes told BT Sport after the match “Because I was facing the goal and Marcus probably saw I was in a better position,”.


“I didn’t know if any of us were in an offside position or not but it doesn’t have any influence because there was no one closer to him. It doesn’t make any influence on the team that has to defend, it is what it is, it’s a goal and at the end of the day and we are relieved for that.”
