Man Utd ace Bruno Fernandes speaks out on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer row and losing faith in him

Bruno Fernandes has rubbished claims of a row between him and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at half-time during the recent Spurs debacle. The United playmaker was understood to have voiced his frustrations after being made the fall guy when Solskjaer juggled his half-time options when Anthony Martial saw red.

But Fernandes, 26, maintained reports he let fly at team-mates or his manager are wide of the mark insisting people are trying to destabilise the club.

The Portuguese has been in stunning form since joining the Red Devils in January.

Burt reports over the last 24 hours have claimed Fernandes has now lost faith in Solskjaer.

“There’s been a lot of speculation about that,” said Fernandes after Portugal’s victory over Sweden on Wednesday.

“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.”

United were already losing 4-1 and down to 10 when Solskjaer decided to replace Fernandes and he maintained he had accepted his manager’s decision even if he was not happy.

He explained: “I was replaced at half-time, it is true, by technical option.
