Manchester United ace Bruno Fernandes has been mocked by team-mate Diogo Dalot – for his new look! The attacking midfielder has replaced his beard-and-moustache combo for a goatee during his downtime at home amid the coronavirus lockdown in the United Kingdom.

Fernandes has become good pals with compatriot Dalot following his January switch from Sporting Lisbon for a fee that could reach £67million.
The new boy was given lifts to the club’s Carrington HQ by Dalot before the coronavirus pandemic brought the Premier League to a halt.
The pair have appear to have been hanging out during the period, delighting fans by practising their shooting together in a garden kickabout.
And Dalot could not resist the opportunity to mock his pal when a picture of his new facial hair style emerged on Twitter.

“Please don’t Bruno Fernandes,” he wrote alongside four crying-laughing emojis. “I think we found the new Narcos actor.”
The post has attracted more than 2,000 retweets and 22,000 likes on the social media site.
Narcos is an American television series based on the story of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.
Fernandes has enjoyed a lethal start to life at Old Trafford, chipping in with four assists and three goals in nine appearances.

That form prompted Dalot to back his pal to become a “legend” at the club.
“He’s a top guy, a top player and he’s going to be a legend here,” the right-back said.
“He’s unbelievable, he can be better of course as well. He’s going to learn a lot from this club.
“I think he is a massive player to have in this team and he’s going to be a very good player for this club. He’s going to be [a legend], no doubt about that.”
It was rumoured that Dalot made packed lunches for Fernandes to take to training – but the former Sporting Lisbon ace was quick to shoot it down.
“He drives me to training – I appreciate it, Diogo,” he said.
“And Diogo wants company, I come with him to breakfast, the gym or something else.
“No this is not true [about the packed lunch], it’s impossible that Diogo would give me a packed lunch.”
