Manchester United attacker Bruno Fernandes has played down an on-field argument with defender Victor Lindelof after seeing his side crash out of the Europa League.
Despite Fernandes opening the scoring for the Red Devils after just nine minutes on Sunday, Sevilla would prove too strong with a 78th-minute strike from Luuk de Jong ensuring the La Liga side progressed to another final courtesy of a 2-1 win.
Following Sevilla’s decisive goal, Fernandes was filmed in a fiery exchange with Lindelof as the duo seemingly debated who was to blame for allowing the Spaniards to strike.
United were unable to find an equaliser after De Jong’s goal and have now been eliminated from European competition by a Spanish opponent for a third straight campaign.
Speaking post-match, Fernandes stressed his argument with Lindelof was ‘normal’ and a natural part of the game when there’s so much at stake.
“It’s normal when you concede. It’s not about me or Victor. What happened between me and Victor is normal,” Fernandes told BT Sport .
“It will happen many more times in football. We need to see the mistakes everybody did and improve.”
