Bruno Fernandes’ camp have banished all reports claiming Fernandes had a burst up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during Man United’s thrashing of Tottenham last two weekends.
Manchester United got the worse of Spurs at Old Trafford before the international break and were beaten thoroughly by Jose Mourinho’s men.
United were 4-1 down to Tottenham at half-time and reports have since claimed that Bruno Fernandes didn’t take Man United’s first-half performance lightly and went as far as to question Solskjaer’s tactics against Spurs.
Different reports also claimed the Portuguese midfielder was not happy with Solskjaer’s decision to haul him off at half-time.
‘He [Fernandes] was clearly in a rage after having a face like thunder when he raced down the tunnel,’ a United insider told the Sunday Mirror.
‘He laid into team-mates, accusing them of not upholding the proud name of Manchester United. He kept yelling, “We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening”.
‘It was clear that the manager also came under fire because he was going on about the wrong tactics.
‘There were other raised voices, but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force.’
However, reports claim those close to the 25-year-old midfielder have dismissed such claims as they believe Bruno Fernandes did not in any way said what were alleged.
According to Sport Witness, the account of a half-time bust-up was branded by his camp as ‘lies’.
The same report claims the self-proclaimed ‘warrior’ is still committed to working with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and there is no issue between the pair.
Since joining Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in January, Bruno Fernandes has scored 14 times and provided 10 assists in 26 matches for the Reds.
His consistency did not only guide United to a 3rd place finish last season but also helped him win the Man United’s Best Player of the Season.
The attacking midfielder will be part of the Reds’ squad that will face Newcastle United on Saturday.
