CASE CLOSED MANCHESTER UNITED fans expressed their glee over Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes arguing – AFTER the Red Devils won the Carabao Cup.
The pair were instrumental to United winning their first cup competition since 2017 as Erik ten Hag’s side swept away Newcastle.
Serial winner Casemiro took issue with teammate Bruno Fernandes after full-time
The EFL Cup victory is the first trophy Fernandes has won in his three years at Manchester United
It is the latest sign that the Dutch boss is dragging the club back onto the road to success.
And fans were pleased to see this “winning mentality” has appeared to translate to the players based on what they saw at full-time.
Only minutes after the whistle was blown to confirm United’s win, Casemiro and Fernandes could be seen having a robust exchange.
The former Real Madrid man, who won five Champions League medals while in Spain, pulled his teammates’ shirt to get his attention before gesturing towards the pitch.
Fernandes appears to be defending himself during the brief chat before a grinning Scott McTominay comes across and defuses the situation.
The Scotsman ruffles Fernandes’ hair before Antony joins and hugs the Portuguese international.
It is not clear what what was up for debate but it may have potentially been Fernandes’ missed chance in stoppage time.
The 28-year-old chose to try and score an incredible solo goal rather than play in McTominay or Jadon Sancho, who were in better shooting positions.
United legend Roy Keane, watching the dispute during punditry, can be heard to say: “I like that. I like that, whatever they’re arguing about. It means they care.”
Fans also enjoyed the moment, taking it as evidence that the pair were not satisfied even after a cup victory.
One said: “Winning mentality that from Casemiro. Big time player.”
Another said: “That Madrid mentality >>>”
While another added: “THAT IS CALLED – MAINTAINING A F***ING STANDARD. WELL DONE!”
Casemiro, 31, gave United the lead a with a header from a free-kick after 32 minutes.
