Manchester United added a new defeat in the Premier League, this time in his visit to Arsenal (3-1). The match had many emotions and the story could have been different, if it weren’t for the penalty missed by Bruno Fernandes, which could have been 2-2. The circumstance was more striking, given that Cristiano Ronaldo, the usual kicker, did not take the ball.
After the match, Ralf Rangnick, coach of the ‘Red Devils’, revealed that ‘CR7’ was not in the best conditions to define the maximum penalty. Let’s remember that the Portuguese went through a difficult week, due to the death of one of the twins he was expecting with Georgina Rodríguez.
“It’s something between Bruno and Cris, they’re both penalty kickers. Cristiano told me after the game that he didn’t feel well enough to run. For that reason, Fernandes was the one who threw. He managed to fool the goalkeeper, but hit the post”, explained the Manchester United manager to beIN Sports.
Despite the difficult circumstances he experienced, ‘CR7′ was able to be part of the presentation against Arsenal and scored his team’s discount. After that goal, the scorer reached 100 celebrations in the Premier League.
