He is also part of the leadership group at the club, which involves Harry Maguire and David De Gea. The attacking midfielder is always seen demonstrating with referees and opponents when decisions don't go his way.

In an interview with The Athletic, the Portuguese international insisted that he would continue pestering referees. He also doesn't understand why he is the only player who gets criticised for doing it, yet other top players do it as well.

I play for Man United, so I know all the cameras are on our players, but everyone in the Premier League does that. At Crystal Palace, Zaha always moans at the referee. It is because he gets fouled, so it is normal he moans at the refer ee. That’s normal! He wants his fouls and for the referee to give yellows to opponents.

Fernandinho, who was at Manchester City, was always moaning at the referee and only kicking me! Bernardo Silva, for example, who people see as a quiet person. He is one of the guys who is always talking to the referees. He probably does not do it as intensely as I do, but I saw it in the national team, so I know.
