We got a glimpse of it on the Community Shield last weekend when Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was shown a yellow card on the touchline for requesting a yellow card for Manchester City’s Rodri.

New rules for this season will see officials crack down on such behavior by both players and managers.

And a number of stars were cautioned over similar antics and disagreements over the opening weekend.

Liverpool’s Alexis Macallister and Chelsea’s Nicolas Jackson were two of the latest to be booked for gesturing for cards during the 1-1 draw between their respective clubs today.

United begin their season with a home game against Wolves on Monday.

But since their new captain Fernandes, 28, has had the form of waving imaginary cards in the past, their fans fear for their captain.

“Somebody at Manchester United needs to talk to Bruno Fernandes or he’ll be booked every game,” someone tweeted.

Another United fan commented: “Bruno Fernandes gets YC every single game I guess.”

“Yellow cards for the booking request for this season? Bruno Fernandes you’re in trouble,” joked another.

“This new dissident rule is terrible. Bruno Fernandes will be banned for one game due to these GW5 rules,” said another supporter.

While another added: “Bruno Fernandes will pick up yellow cards this season.”
