Bruno Fernandes took to social media to acknowledge his penalty miss during Manchester United’s 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United were losing in added time after Kortney Hause headed home two minutes before the end to score the eventual winner.

Hause gave away a penalty shortly after he scored, handling Fernandes’ cross with Mike Dean pointing to the penalty spot after help from his assistant referee.

Fernandes, who had scored 21 of his previous 22 penalty kicks for the Red Devils, skied his 23rd over the bar.

The 27 year-old took his miss to heart, posting a lengthy statement to social media outlining his intention to keep taking penalties for United.

Writing on photo and video-sharing platform Instagram, Fernandes said: “Nobody is more frustrated and disappointed than me for missing the penalty and the consequent defeat.

“I’ve always assumed my responsibilities and I’ve always embraced them under pressure in moments like this. Today, I failed.

“But I took a step forward and faced the challenge with the same ambition and responsibility as when, on the many other occasions, the ball ended up in the net.

“Criticism and contrasting opinions are a big part of football. I’ve learned to live with it, even using them to drive me on, and I consider it all a very important part of my commitment to never stop trying to improve and to become the best player I can possibly be, for me and the team.

“Today I once again took the responsibility given to me almost since I joined United and I will take it again without any fear or dread whenever called upon.”

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.
