Bruno Fernandes caught on pitchside mic joking with Man Utd pal McTominay 'the ball was for me, motherf***er' after goal

MANCHESTER UNITED star Bruno Fernandes joked with Scott McTominay that the 'the ball was for me, motherf***er' after the Scottish midfielder's winner against West Ham.

McTominay expertly slammed home Marcus Rashford's assist in the seventh minute of extra-time in the FA Cup fifth round clash.

But Fernandes, often used to taking the glory this season, joked that it should have been him heralded as the match-winner.

As the players ran towards a delighted McTominay, Rashford was heard saying 'brilliant' while Fernandes said: "Hey, the ball was for me motherf***er."

The clip has been shared on TikTok and Twitter by the United Zone fan account.

And United fans enjoyed seeing it, with Eric Mawlong writing 'love this', Shashank Choudhary posting 'what a mad man, Cristiano mentality' and Stephen Greenwood adding 'this man, brilliant'.

McTominay came on as a 73rd minute sub as to add some much needed energy to a tiring team.

In all likelihood the ball would have ran on through to Fernandes.

But McTominay showed the killer instinct just like Fernandes to bury it for his seventh goal of the season.

And it added further gloss to what has been a brilliant season so far for the 24-year-old Scot.

He is now one of the first name's on the teamsheet for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has started to chip in with goals too.

McTominay's seven goal-haul this season is more than Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Fred and Nemanja Matic COMBINED.

And Solskjaer revealed McTominay, who was sporting a lockdown haircut, enjoys being in the box thanks to playing as a striker in his youth.

Following his side's 1-0 win, he said: "Scott used to be a striker and I think he finishes with authority.

"You see that he doesn't mind being in those positions. He just smashed the ball into the net."
