Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has expressed his confusion over Bruno Fernandes’ decision to pass penalty duties to Marcus Rashford before our third goal on Tuesday night.

The Portuguese, had scored a brace, and was on a hat-trick, but when the opportunity presented itself for him to get his third goal, he instead, passed it on to Rashford.

Of course, Rashford dispatched the spot kick clinically to hand us our third goal, but Scholes, who watched the game in the BT Sport studio, was very confused about the decision.

He said during the halftime break, “I don’t get it.

“Fernandes has taken all the penalties when he’s played. He’s on the chance of a hat-trick on a European night, I don’t understand it.

“But ultimately we get the same result so there’s not too much damage done.”

It’s not the first time Fernandes would pass up a chance to score a hat-trick just so his teammates could get in on the goals as well.

The former Sporting Lisbon man also handed Edinson Cavani his first goal for Man United in our recent Premier League encounter with Everton.
