From a passionate Leeds manager to Fred’s son celebrating at Old Trafford – the best of weekend socials


From Manchester United’s masterclass thanks to Ralf Rangnick to Newcastle’s long-awaited first victory of the season, the Premier League weekend was far from boring.

And with tons of action on the pitch, the reactions were just as entertaining.

Here is our pick of the best of social media.

DAD’S NUMBER ONE FAN

New interim manager Ralf Rangnick has proven he is there to win by taking charge of his debut game against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.

And it may have come as a surprise that Fred, who has been under pressure this season, won three vital points at Manchester United with a stunning right-footed winner.

Although the Brazilian was the hero of the match, his son Benjamin stole the show by celebrating his father’s goal in the stands.

Fred’s wife Monique Salum shared her son’s heartwarming moment on her Instagram Story and the images quickly took to social media.

WINDY KLOPP

Ahead of Liverpool’s last minute victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, boss Jurgen Klopp experienced the windy weather at Molineux Stadium.

In the pre-match chat, the backdrop for the Sky Sports interview fell backwards as Klopp was in the midst of his sentence due to high winds.

Laughing at the incident, the German manager said: “It was me! It wasn’t the wind.

Previously, Klopp had blamed the wind for disrupting Liverpool’s game against Manchester City as they fell behind in the title race in 2019 and it wouldn’t have come as a surprise if the Reds boss blamed the weather if Liverpool had lost.

TENSION IN THE STANDS

Despite winning a well-deserved point, Leeds director Victor Orta lost his mind as he went berserk at someone in the crowd.

The drama unfolded after Patrick Bamford scored a last minute equalizer for Leeds against their Premier League rivals.

Orta looked furious as he pointed and gestured and was later restrained by GM Angus Kinnear.

And of course, the video became a huge hit on social media…

HOWE-AY

FINALLY, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle pocketed their first victory of the season.

Callum Wilson scored the winner against Burnley and Toon’s army loved every moment of it.

Fans were posting “Eddie Howe’s Black and White Army” on social media after their long-awaited victory.

ANGER BELLINGHAM

In the Bundesliga, Jude Bellingham has expressed his frustrations after watching Saturday’s clash slip away from the hosts.

The England midfielder was far from happy with referee Felix Zwayer following his side’s 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich, suggesting that an official with a history of rigging results shouldn’t be far from the game flagship of the Bundesliga.

Bellingham said: “For me it was not [a penalty].

“You can watch a lot of decisions in the game, you give a referee who rigged a game before Germany’s biggest game, what do you expect?”

“I think it was a scandal as far as the refereeing is concerned,” dismissed the Norwegian, while also expressing his anger at seeing a penalty appeal for Marco Reus rejected.

“He was arrogant, and I won’t say more.”
