Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes labelled 'stupid' by Paul Scholes despite Real Betis win

Fernandes will not face any punishment for that incident. Erik ten Hag leapt to the defence of his player when speaking to the media on Wednesday.

Fernandes had put United 3-1 up against Betis just 10 minutes before he was booked. He headed in a Luke Shaw corner to open up a lead for Ten Hag’s side.

Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring with a fierce effort just six minutes into the game. Ayoze Perez, on loan from Leicester, drew Betis level with a fine effort on the half-hour mark.

But United turned up the heat after half-time, with Antony curling in a stunning effort to put his team back into the lead. Fernandes then scored his goal before Wout Weghorst rounded off the victory after missing a number of chances earlier in the game.
