Bruno Fernandes has come forward to state his views on the failing tactics of Manchester United boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer, citing his actions and strategies as “plainly wrong”.
Manchester United have been enduring a horrendous start to the season and a 6-1 routing by Tottenham Hotspurs has brought to the fore all that is wrong with the Reds at the moment. Solskjaer, in particular looks to be under the ax as after the football pundits and media, even his own players have come out in the open to question his ideas.
Bruno Fernandes lashes out after his half time substitution
Manchester United were 1-0 up thanks to Bruno’s penalty but everything spiraled downwards from there.
As a result, going into the break, Hotspurs were 4-1 up, and Solksjaer in a bid to turn around his fortunes in the second half substituted Bruno Fernandez.
Fernandes was evidently offended and didn’t react well to the decision which ultimately culminated in a furious bust-up with the Red’s manager.

Fernandes could be heard repeatedly shouting: “We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening.”
One of the staff members also testified about Fernandes’ evident rage after being substituted.
“You couldn’t help but hear him,” they said. “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.” said the staff member.
“There were other raised voices, but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force.” one of the other staff members added.
The bumpy road that Solskjaer must tread
While Manchester United had gone into the season with much hope, with many hoping this to be Ole Solskjaer’s breakthrough season, the signs so far have been anything but positive.
With Man U failing to secure the services of a genuine number 9 and the Harry Maguire led defense in totters, the claim and the weight of the words “We are Manchester United” seem to be dwindling with every passing day.
