Manchester United Claimed a narrow 1-0 win over in form Aston Vila at Old Trafford on Sunday, thanks to a solitary goal from Bruno Fernandes in the 39th minute of the match the lone goal was enough for United to end the 10 game unbeaten streak of their opponent. After the goal, the Portuguese midfielder ran into the travelling fans and did a Poker- Faced celebration.
“Obviously they probably don’t like to play against me, but it is what it is, It’s football, I’m okay with that, they can enjoy the game in the way they want. I would prefer for them to come and support their players, instead of focusing on me, but if they think it’s better to be focused on me than their own players, then I don’t mind that at all” he said.
All of this came just two days after Qatari billionaire Sheikh Jassim and Jim Ratcliffe submitted their third bid to take over the club ownership from American family business group the Glazers. The Red Devils’ fans came out to protest against the Glazers for the 100% sale of the club and demanding them to leave the club totally.
