What Bruno Fernandes allegedly said in Man Utd bust-up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Bruno Fernandes reportedly launched a scathing half-time attack on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his Manchester United team-mates during last week’s 6-1 defeat against Tottenham.

United were thumped by the north London club at Old Trafford, conceding four goals in the first half of a Premier League match for the first time in their history.

And according to The Mirror, Fernandes became embroiled in a furious bust-up with Solskjaer at the half-time break.

The report states that United match-day officials first saw the Portugal midfielder storm down the tunnel and then heard him shout in the dressing room: “We are supposed to be Manchester United!”

An insider 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.”

After his fiery outburst in the dressing room, Fernandes was taken off at the interval and replaced by Fred in a second half which saw United concede another two goals.

However, a United official played down talk of a fallout between the £67million ace and Solskjaer by insisting that “players often express their views”.

Fernandes had given the Red Devils liftoff on the day, converting from the penalty spot after two minutes when Davinson Sanchez was deemed to have brought down Anthony Martial inside the box.

Tanguy Ndombele only need another two minutes to bring Spurs level, before Son Heung-min fired them ahead in the seventh.

And when Martial was sent off for appearing to slap Erik Lamela, Son and Harry Kane added another two goals for the visitors before the break.

Serge Aurier made it 5-1 six minutes into the second half, with Kane later adding his second from the spot to seal the rout.
