Gary Neville has lashed into Bruno Fernandes for "throwing his arms around" and keeps complaining after a chaotic captain's performance in their 7-0 mauling at Liverpool.

Fernandes was singled out by Neville for failing to lead on the pitch.

“There were things that I saw in that second half that were a disgrace and I'm going to start with Bruno Fernandes,' a fuming Neville said on Sky Sports.

"I've had enough of him throwing his arms around at his team-mates; I've had enough of him not running back; he whinges at everybody.'

He added: "He got pushed in the chest and went down holding his face. He's got to put a captain's performance in out there and that wasn't a captain's performance by a Manchester United player."

The Portuguese, who has  been labelled a "disgrace" by Neville during the post-match at Anfield, appeared to wave his arms in displeasure when Erik ten Hag failed to take him off late in the game.

His level of performance was also questioned as United conceded six second-half goals in one of their most humiliating results ever.

"Fernandes's body language today was disgraceful," fellow pundit Roy Keane added.

"He's a really talented boy, he's your captain. But his body language, waving his arms not running back, you wouldn't be happy with him."

The Portuguese midfielder is not averse to letting his team-mates have it and he is often very animated on the pitch in his demeanour - but neither Keane nor Neville were having it at Anfield.

On one occasion in particular, Fernandes battled for possession with Liverpool defender Ibrahim Konat, only to be denied by the Frenchman.
Konate poked Fernandes in the chest and the Portuguese fell to cover his face.

"Touches the chest, he holds his face, that's embarrassing from Bruno Fernandes," Neville fumed.

"Some of Fernandes' behaviour in this half has been a disgrace," Neville said after the first 45 minutes. By the end he was even more appalled before trying to shift the focus onto how United rise from this.

"I think Erik ten Hag will deal with them very strongly in the next 24-48 hours, he's done that a few times already this season,' Neville added.
'I'd hope normal service will be resumed by the end of next week."
