Fernandes had ‘furious bust-up’ with Solskjaer at half-time of Man Utd defeat

Bruno Fernandes had a furious bust-up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United trailed Tottenham at half-time last Sunday.

The Portugal international's temper had got the better of him, where he lashed out at his manager's tactics and took aim at his team-mates.

He could be heard repeatedly shouting: "We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening."

It comes after a truly miserable display from the Red Devils last weekend.

Tottenham inflicted their biggest home defeat since 2013 after thrashing them 6-1.

Despite going 1-0 up thanks to a Fernandes penalty, United crumbled almost from kick-off when Tanguy Ndombele went up the other end and equalised.

Spurs raced into a 4-1 lead at half-time, which also saw Anthony Martial sent off.

And there were some choice words from Fernandes towards his manager and team-mates.

“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.

“There were other raised voices, but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force.”

Fernandes was hauled off at half-time and replaced by Fred as the Red Devils further shipped two more goals to make it 6-1.

Solskjaer remarked it was his "worst day as a manager" and leaves United's season at a crossroads.

A trip to St. James' Park awaits to take on Newcastle when Premier League football returns next week.

That is followed by their opening match in the Champions League where they face Paris St-Germain in a tough group that also includes last year's semi-finalists RB Leipzig.

However, there could be a chance for United's new signings Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles.
