Manchester United star Anthony Martial had a hilarious message for Bruno Fernandes after the Red Devils’ 3-0 win against Watford on Sunday afternoon. Fernandes opened the scoring from the penalty spot at Old Trafford before Martial and Mason Greenwood netted to secure the victory.
United’s summer signing Fernandes played a part in all three goals, with the Portugal international getting the assist for Greenwood’s strike.
Martial now has 15 goals in all competitions, with the France ace playing as United’s No 9 in recent weeks following Marcus Rashford’s injury.
And Martial took to social media to joke with Fernandes about his service in United’s win against Watford.
“Great win and please @brunofernandes.10 next time give me a better pass,” Martial wrote on Instagram alongside a laughing emoji and a flame emoji.
