Fernandes on Solskjaer "fight" and Ferguson’s likely reaction
Bruno Fernandes has revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lost his temper with him on two occasions at Manchester United.
The Portuguese made the revelation while discussing his relationship with the Red Devils, boss, who he says fills the squad with confidence.
Solskjaer has had his credentials questioned in the past, amid the suggestion he is too much of a 'nice guy' to shake up a dressing room.
But the revelation from Fernandes that this isn't the case would have gone down well with Solskjaer's former boss at Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Scot was never one to shy away from administering some hairdryer treatment, and according to Ryan Giggs, even enjoyed it when players argued back.
Giggs previously recalled Ferguson's reaction to him talking back in an argument.
Giggs said: "He actually, later in his career, he told me he liked that, it meant that you cared.
"He'd still fine you two weeks because he wanted to show that he was in charge but he actually quite liked it, as long as it didn't cross the line or course.
"The good thing is, the next day it was finished. He would fine you two weeks wages, a week's wages. The next day he'd get you in and it was over with, let's move on."
Fernandes opened up on his two arguments with with Solskjaer behind the scenes at United in an interview with Norway's TV2.
He said: "He has his moments, like everyone else. I think he's been really mad at me twice.
"It's not so much, I've played 54 games now. During those fights he has been angry with me twice, it's not bad, so I'm happy with that. Sometimes he has to be calm, other times he has to scream and yell at his players.
"It's about how to get the best out of the players. For me, it works well that he is angry sometimes. I don't want to be a player no one demands anything of."
Fernandes added: "I think everyone knows that he gives the players a lot of confidence. The conversations we had when I came here were very important to me, because he always said that I should express myself.
"In the beginning, he often repeated that I should express myself, be myself and do the same as I have always done. Over time, he has begun to demand more and more of me, and I think it is important that I demand a lot back."
