EPL: FA told to ban Bruno Fernandes for five games

The English FA has been told to hand Bruno Fernandes at least a five match ban for pushing the lineman during Manchester United’s 7-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Ref Support UK wants the Portuguese to serve a five-game ban for his action.

Fernandes tangled with Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold before shoving linesman Adam Nunn in the back.

“I think he’s got to be looking at least a five-game ban,” Martin Cassidy, chief executive of Ref Support UK, told PA.

“I think that would be absolutely appropriate…”
