It stopped the 21-year-old from being on the pitch to enjoy the celebrations at the end as Manchester United advanced into the semi-finals of the FA Cup following a thrilling 4-3 win.

And United captain Fernandes said: “It’s part of the moment and part of being young.

“This moment has to be enjoyed and I think it’s one of the rules football has to change, because you should be able to celebrate the goal, obviously with respect to other clubs, to enjoy your moment.”

Amad’s moment as he broke away with Alejandro Garnacho was a reward for all his work to fight his way back into the Manchester United reckoning.

He was out on loan at Sunderland last season where he won their young player of the year award.

He returned to fight his way into the United first team but suffered an injury in pre-season.

When fit again there was no room for him in the team.

But he has stuck to his task.

Fernandes said: “The thing with Amad, he got his reward because he’s doing the right things. When you do the right things, you get a chance, and what is yours comes to you. He deserves it.”

Amad’s goal was the culmination of a crazy afternoon at Old Trafford.

United had dominated the first-half yet saw themselves 2-1 down at the break.

Antony came on to get a late equaliser.

The Red Devils were behind again in extra time but Marcus Rashford scored, then the Amad moment.

Fernandes said: “The first 30 minutes were probably one of the best 30 minutes we have had all season.

“We know it’s difficult to do it for 90 minutes against a team like Liverpool, but we could have done it better for a long spell in the game.

“Still, the belief in the team, coming back from bad moments has always been there, even more this season because we had a lot of ups and downs.

“This is a game you win or lose – you’re in or out. It’s a different competition.”
