Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes failed to take a penalty kick in overtime in the match that brought his team and Aston Villa together on Saturday in the English Premier League.
The United match and its guest, Aston Villa, witnessed a dramatic scenario that ended with the “Red Devils” receiving a sudden defeat with a fatal goal in the last minute of the original time.
Bruno Fernandes had a great opportunity to equalize after the referee awarded a penalty kick for his team, but he hit the ball over the crossbar in the third minute of added time.
This is the first penalty kick that United receives after Ronaldo’s return to the club, and everyone was waiting for whether the Don would take the penalty kicks or whether the task would remain entrusted to his compatriot Bruno.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided this by adopting Bruno as the first port, given that he scored 20 kicks in the “reds” shirt since his arrival, and missed only one kick.
Although Ronaldo did not take the penalty kick, he did not show any sign of anger towards the matter. On the contrary, he was the first to reach his colleague and support him after the chance of a tie was missed.
The match ended with a historic victory for Aston Villa on the grounds of the “Old Trafford” stadium, so that Manchester United’s balance stopped at 13 points in fourth place, behind only the goal difference of Manchester City and Chelsea clubs, and one point behind the leaders Liverpool.
