  • Neil Maupay caused an outrage among Manchester United fans on Sunday
  • The Brentford star hilariously labelled one of the United players a “fan”
  • Maupay is gaining a reputation as the Premier League’s most notorious villain

Neil Maupay was up to his usual antics on Sunday, March 31 as he aimed a brutal dig at a Manchester United player.

This came just hours after Brentford somehow avoided defeat by salvaging a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils.

In the late kick off on Saturday, it almost looked like Erik ten Hag’s men had grabbed a win against the run of play after Mason Mount scored his first goal for the club in the sixth minute of added time, according to BBC.

But there was still time for more drama, as Kristoffer Ajer equalised three minutes later to send the Brentford Community Stadium into wild celebrations.

The draw was nothing less than what Thomas Frank’s side deserved, as they were extremely dominant against a Manchester United side that looked devoid of ideas at times.

In fact, United could consider themselves lucky to have come out with a point, as Brentford came close to taking the lead on several occasions through Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa, who all hit the post.

Hours after the game, with the game still hot in fans’ mouths, Neil Maupay decided to wind up United fans some more with a brutal dig at Scot McTominay.

The Brentford summer signing shared a photo of himself in a tussle with the United midfielder along with the caption, “This fan was desperate for my shirt,” coupled with a laughing emoji.

Maupay certainly knew the storm that would come after his post, which attracted hundreds of comments from fans who criticised him for always trying to pick fights with other rivals.

Maupay’s past ‘beefs’

This is not the first time the Frenchman is winding up fans from an opposing team.

In February, he clashed with Tottenham’s James Maddison over a darts goal celebration. After bundling in his side’s first goal, Maupay performed the celebration, which is well known to belong to the Tottenham star, according to Sky Sports.

In a cruel twist of fate for Maupay, Tottenham turned the game around through goals from Destiny Udogie, Brennan Johnson and Richarlison, giving Madisson a chance to respond to the Brentford striker.

Kalvin Phillips vs West Ham fans

In other news, Sports Brief reported on Kalvin Phillips’ obscene gesture towards West Ham fans after his side’s 4-3 defeat to Newcastle.

Phillips conceded the penalty that inspired the Magpies to come from 3-1 down to secure a famous win at St James’ Park.

After the game, Phillips was heckled by West Ham fans, and he responded by making an offensive gesture towards them.
