Man Utd insiders detail Bruno Fernandes’ "rage" at Solskjaer’s tactics

Bruno Fernandes had a furious half-time bust-up with Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the 6-1 hammering by Spurs.

The Portuguese rounded on Solskjaer over the tactics with United trailing 4-1 after the Portuguese midfielder had given the home side an early lead through a composed penalty.

United match-day officials saw Fernandes, 26, storm past them in the tunnel and then heard him angrily lashing out verbally in the dressing room, shouting: “We are supposed to be Manchester United!”

One revealed: “You couldn’t help but hear him.

“He was clearly in a rage after having a face like thunder when he raced down the tunnel.

“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.”

Fernandes was substituted, Fred taking his place for the second half in which United conceded two more goals.

But a Manchester United official insisted: “There was no row. Players often express their views.”

A report from The Athletic quoted an insider saying: “I don’t think anyone would be pleased getting taken off because it looks to the world like it’s your fault.”

Another added: “Bruno can be direct but in this case, he has three games coming with the national team and the impression was that Ole wanted to save him and protect him from getting too frustrated on the field.”
