There have been calls for Bruno Fernandes to be stripped of the Manchester United captaincy following his poor attitude during Manchester United’s 7-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday.

Fernandes pushed the assistant referee, held his face after being caught in the chest by Ibrahima Konate and gestured to come off the field after Liverpool scored their sixth.

According to The Sun, Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has ‘no plans’ to strip Bruno Fernandes of the armband despite calls for the midfielder to have the captaincy removed following his display against Liverpool.

Ten Hag has no plans to take the armband off Fernandes and the midfielder still retains his faith.
