BRUNO FERNANDES was hailed by fans for his classy gesture in a post-match interview after Manchester United's win over Burnley.
The Portuguese star volleyed in a sublime winner against the Clarets at Turf Moor to give Manchester United a much-needed win.
Fernandes, 29, was presented with the Man of the Match award at full-time but refused to accept it.
Instead, the midfielder handed the award to Jonny Evans, 35, after he made his first start for the club since his return.
Evans was unlucky not to get on the scoresheet as VAR ruled out his header because Rasmus Hojlund blocked goalkeeper James Trafford from an offside position.
The defender, however, did make a crucial impact as he played a brilliant ball over the Burnley backline for Fernandes to fire the visitors into the lead.
