Ilkay Gundogun has accused Manchester United rival Bruno Fernandes of cheating.
Gundogan conceded the free kick that led to United’s opening goal in their 2-0 win over Manchester City at Old Trafford following a foul on Fernandes.
Mike Dean penalised the German international, despite replays showing there was little contact with Fernandes.

Gundogan reckons Dean got it wrong – and believes Fernandes conned the referee by play acting.
He said: “There was frustration about the free kick before the goal – it was not at all a foul. I just touched the ball and he (Fernandes) goes on the floor, shouting.
“I don’t even know if the referee saw it or just had a feeling that it was a foul. That was very disappointing for me, to be honest, because I was involved in the action and conceding the goal straight afterwards hurt very much.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
