Manchester United legend Roy Keane says Erik ten Hag should own up to his ‘mistake’ by stripping Bruno Fernandes of the club captaincy.

Fernandes was given the armband in the summer, when he replaced Harry Maguire.

It came after Fernandes regularly captained the side last season when Maguire was not a regular fixture in the starting XI.

Fernandes took plenty of criticism last season when he shoved a linesman during United’s 7-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Gary Neville slammed him during today’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City for his petulance, and said he was ‘not conning anyone’.

But Keane went a step further, saying that Ten Hag should strip Fernandes of the captaincy.

‘The first thing I’d do is change the captain,’ said Keane.

‘Bruno Fernandes is not captain material. He’s moaning all the time.

‘He’s the complete opposite to what a captain should be for me.’
