There’s a wild conspiracy circulating on social media about Bruno Fernandes missing his 93rd-minute Aston Villa penalty – and costing us the draw – ‘on purpose’ to get manager, Gunnar Solskjaer ‘sacked’, of course.
A video by fan account ‘reddevilarmy21’ has surfaced on TikTok with the message: “This miss was not an accident.”
According to Spanish publication, Tribuna, footage of Bruno’s missed penalty is then played followed by a Steven Gerrard incident with then – Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson.
Hodgson exit Liverpool in 2011 after Gerrard missed a penalty in a 3-1 loss to Black Burn Rovers. Fans famously believe he did it on purpose which led to the boss’ sacking.
Both situations are completely different and given Bruno’s close relationship with Ole.
