Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes has strong Ed Woodward view after dismissing Solskjaer row

Bruno Fernandes has shut down claims of unrest inside the Manchester United dressing room following the suggestion of a row with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Portuguese international decided to speak out and defend his relationship with the United boss ahead of his return to Carrington.

Fernandes was withdrawn from the action at half-time last time out for the Red Devils in the 6-1 thrashing against Tottenham.

Following the match, Fernandes allegedly took aim at some of his teammates for their lack of fight for the shirt.

The United talisman felt personally insulted by the defeat and was not impressed by the mentality of his colleagues.

Despite Fernandes’ defence of his relationship with Solskjaer, Portuguese journalist Goncalo Lopes has confirmed the player remains frustrated with the board and their lack of productivity in the transfer market.

Lopes tweeted: “Don’t know about any row between him and Solskjaer. True that he believes Solskjaer could do better and has to do better. And for this he’s losing his faith on him.

“[He] Also believes the board should had done better on the signings.”

United had made just one summer signing up until the capitulation against Spurs.

The alarming performance sparked panic amongst the United board, who scrambled to complete four deals before the deadline.

Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles arrived through the door as well as youngsters Facundo Pellistri and Amad Traore (who join in January from Atalanta).

Fernandes’ arrival last January was the turning point in United’s season and they went on to secure a third-place finish.

Solskjaer has failed to build on that as of yet as the pressure mounts on the Norwegian.

After Portugal’s 3-0 win over Sweden, Fernandes took the chance to set the record straight.

“There’s been a lot of speculation about that,” said Fernandes.

“First it was a discussion with team-mates, which did not stick, then it was a discussion with only one team-mate [Victor Lindelof], and that did not stick. Now it is the discussion with Solskjaer.

“I believe it is a way to destabilise the group. What was said is in no way true.”

He added on the substitution against Tottenham: “I was replaced at half-time, it is true, by technical option.

“The coach told me that the game was almost over and that we would have a lot of games ahead of us. Got it.

“I was not satisfied but said nothing that could harm the group.

“Do not use my name, my colleagues or the coach to make trouble at Manchester United.

“The atmosphere is good and the team is ready to give an answer in the next game.”
