Bruno Fernandes has paid a touching tribute to his brother – who is currently working with the NHS in the battle against Covid-19.
The Manchester United midfielder has suffered a tough week as he recovers from the club’s 6-1 thumping by Tottenham.
And it has seen the 25-year-old show his angry side to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with an outburst at half time.
But he took a moment to praise his brother Ricardo, who has been working at the NHS during the pandemic alongside his girlfriend.
Speaking on the club’s official website, Fernandes said: “He is working in London and his girlfriend is also working in London. And my brother said two days ago, I don’t see a photo in your Instagram saying ‘thank you’ for your work.
Manchester United are looking to plot their path back to the top. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already brought in Donny van de Beek but Jadon Sancho remains Manchester United's number one target.

“I say it now so, after, he can see it on MUTV, thank you for his work in the NHS!
“It’s hard work [for the NHS staff], you know. They work for so many hours. Some of them can’t see their families and friends and it was really difficult.
“For example, my brother he was due to come in March but he didn’t come because he was working in the hospital. He doesn’t want me to take any risks in being with him as he could have had the virus or not.
“For him, it was difficult as he couldn’t fly back to Portugal to see my mum and dad. So, for him and the rest of the people, it was really difficult.
“Some people have kids at home and need to go to work and go somewhere else, go to work and go somewhere else. Only after maybe two to three months working, they can see their kids. It was very difficult.”
It comes as United insiders have detailed Fernandes’ “rage” at Solskjaer’s tactics, with the Red Devils taking just three points from their first three games.
