Man Utd star Fred overheard telling Fernandes his Leicester assist was ‘s***’

Manchester United star Fred was overheard telling Bruno Fernandes that his assist against Leicester was "s***".

The Red Devils can thank their Portuguese superstar for yet another brilliant performance this weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were nowhere near their best but Fernandes put in a now-typical display.

He set up Marcus Rashford for the opener with a brilliant toe-poked assist before scoring in the second-half in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

Harvey Barnes and an own goal from Axel Tuanzebe saw the spoils shared between the two teams.

But Fred was clearly unimpressed with Fernandes despite his impact, jokingly telling his Portuguese-speaking teammate that his assist was "s***".

The Brazilian could be overheard on BT Sport's cameras with no fans at the King Power as the players celebrated Rashford's goal.

Fred must be hard to impress because Fernandes' assist was delightfully clever and quick-witted.

With Daniel James hurtling into the box, he fed the ex-Sporting star – who instinctively stuck a leg out, diverting the ball into an unmarked Rashford.

The England international had the simply task of slotting the ball past Kasper Schmeichel, atoning for his early miss from a Fernandes pass.

With the two in celebration, Fernandes could be heard asking: "Did you see my assist? Did you see it?"

And as the other United players joined in, Fred was spotted replying in Portuguese: "What a s*** assist."

The moment was clearly meant in a jovial manner and United fans are loving the bond between their stars.

One supporter said: "Why do I love these boys so much yet they almost end me with heart attacks all-day."

While another tweeted: "LOL how can this be a question after you score a goal”.

Despite the draw, United have seen a remarkable upturn in form in recent weeks with Fernandes steering them back towards the top-four.

The 26-year-old has a combined number of 31 goals and assists in 28 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.

United face Wolves next at Old Trafford on Tuesday night and could go one point behind league leaders Liverpool into second with a win.
