"Like if you stopped downloading Ross Barkley at 55%" - Fans blast Manchester United star for 'vanishing act' during Champions League exit


Football fans on Twitter have accused Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes of failing to turn up during the Red Devils' 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. The Portuguese returned to the starting eleven for Manchester United after missing the 3-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday due to illness.

However, Fernandes was unable to inspire his team to a win as they crashed out of the Champions League in the Round of 16 after going down 2-1 on aggregate. Over the course of a frustrating game for the hosts at Old Trafford, Fernandes struggled to settle into any sort of rhythm.

His only major contribution came early on in the game in the form of a low cross. Anthony Elanga was on the receiving end of it, but crashed his shot straight into Jan Oblak, who denied the attempt from close range with his face.

In the wake of a forgetful display for Manchester United, Fernandes ended up receiving strong criticism from football fans. Even rival supporters used the opportunity to aim digs at the Manchester United star. One of the tweets read:

"Bruno Fernandes is like if you stopped downloading Ross Barkley at 55%."

Here are some of the other reactions to his performance on the night:
