Bruno Fernandes was heard calling Scott McTominay a “motherf*****” after the Scot’s extra-time goal in the 1-0 win over West Ham on Tuesday.
The midfielder volleyed home in the 97th minute after a deft lay-off by Marcus Rashford.

McTominay was engulfed in celebration by his teammates, with Rashford hailing his “brilliant” finish, while Fernandes was heard telling the goalscorer: “Hey, the ball was for me motherf*****!”
As Rashford played the ball back for McTominay, Fernandes was just a few yards away calling for the ball.
The goal was McTominay’s seventh of the season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was effusive in his praise of the 24-year-old’s goalscoring streak.
“Scott’s a clinical striker of the ball. He used to play as a striker, we know that, and he finishes with authority,” he told MUTV.
“Like, ‘bang’, finish. No messing about. No safety. That’s something we’ve got to learn from.
“For a defensive midfielder, we’ll have to unleash him and release him forward because he’s a goal threat in the box and he’s got a good strike on him.”
