ANGRY Manchester United fans have accused Manchester City captain Fernandinho of making fun of the Munich air disaster on the anniversary of the tragedy

Fernandinho, 35, posted images on social media on Saturday celebrating a goal in training by running like an airplane with his arms outstretched

It sparked an angry reaction from some Red Devils fans for the 63rd time Anniversary of the accident in which 23 people were killed, including eight members of the “Busby Babes” team

Disgruntled Old Trafford Club supporters described the Brazilian midfielder as “gross” and “shameful” and asked the FA to ban him

While others accepted, Fernandinho didn’t mean to insult but said he should have been more careful today

United’s city star Bernardo Silva and Edinson Cavani were recently banned by the FA for inappropriate social media posts

The disaster of 1958 occurred at the take-off from Munich Airport, after United had just qualified for the semi-finals of the European Cup
