‘You’re here to play football NOT to film it!’: New footage shows Bruno Fernandes screaming furiously at Man United’s Brazil duo Fred and Alex Telles and ‘film my d**k’ Anger at lack of professionalism calls

  • Bruno Fernandes was seen yelling at teammates Fred and Alex Telles in the video
  • The Man United star is urging the duo to stop filming and start training for the day
  • The Brazilians tell Fernandes to ‘relax’ after his energetic tirade.
  • Online fans have praised the Portuguese star’s ‘captain mentality’

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes was caught telling his team-mates Fred and Alex Telles to “stop being ballers like that”, in a powerful rant about their lack of professionalism.

The Brazil duo were filming outside United’s Carrington training ground when the Portugal international called over to tell them to stop filming and start training.

The encounter was captured as part of Telles’ “A Day in the Life” video with Brazilian football marketing agency O Clube Football, and the footage will be shared on social media this week.

Fred and Telles were not impressed with their teammate and told him to relax.

Fernandes insisted the pair “stop being ballers like that” before the Brazilians told him to “relax”.

In the footage, United’s Brazil duo stand in front of Carrington as Fernandes spots his team-mates from afar and shouts, “Stop being such ‘ballers’!”

The Portugal international then says: “You are here to play football, not to film it!”

Before you say to the camera crew, “Film my d**k.”

Fred and Telles, apparently amused by Fernande’s aggression, tell the midfielder, “Chill out you f****r!”

Despite the use of expletives, the exchange is believed to be a hoax between team-mates but that hasn’t stopped fans online from praising the Portuguese midfielder’s ‘captain mentality’.

One fan claimed: “Need more of that mentality. Enough lingards and pogbas. Need more Vidic and Keane mentality in the dressing room.

“This character was portrayed by Roy Keane. He deserves to be the next #MUFC captain,” wrote another user.

Fernandes could well be the next United captain given the possibility that Harry Maguire could be stripped of the armband this season.

As Sportsmail reported this week, United will keep the England centre-back but he could well be relieved of the responsibility of running the team.

It comes after a decidedly shaky 2021-22 season that saw Maguire’s leadership and defensive qualities repeatedly called into question.

It’s unclear exactly when this footage was filmed, but allegations of sloppy standards and unprofessionalism have plagued the United dressing room in recent seasons.

New manager Erik ten Hag is already making his mark at the club and will not approve of squad members filming social content outside of the club’s training ground.

Telles signed for United for £15million in 2020. He made 26 appearances in all competitions last season but is not seen as Ten Hag’s long-term solution at left-back.

Fred, meanwhile, has been there since his £52million move to Old Trafford in 2018. Ten Hag has made no secret that he wants to move up the midfield this summer, leaving Fred’s playing time in doubt.
