Some took his comments as an attack on his former team-mate Ronaldo, who parted ways with the club in November by mutual consent. But Bruno has now clarified his comment by posting a message on Instagram.

“I know it’s hard to see Manchester United doing well, but I have nothing but good things to say about us in the news. Don’t use my name to attack Cristiano.”

“Cristiano was part of our team for half the season and as I’ve said in many interviews, everyone since the Liverpool game has been great and behaving like a proper team and you can see the results. We continue!”, wrote the Portuguese star.

Fernandes equalized in the 78th minute in controversial circumstances, before Marcus Rashford scored the winner as United beat their hated rivals on Saturday.

The result moved them up to third place with 38 points from 18 games, one point behind City and six points behind first-placed Arsenal but with a game in hand.
