“Bruno Fernandes is the worst team mate at United”
Former Premier League player Gabriel Agbonlahor, focuses his criticism on United’s Portuguese player, after the club endured two defeats in the new Premier League season.
Few Manchester United players have escaped the spotlight of criticism in these first two rounds of the Premier League, which have resulted in defeats against Brighton (1-2) and Brentford (4-0). Even the coach, Erik Ten Hag, has already received numerous negative comments about his approach or his management of the squad.
One of those who seemed to escape early finger-pointing was Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese has been a solid servant for Manchester United since his move from Lisbon but former Premier League star Gabriel Agbonlahor has openly criticized the Portugal international for his displays in these two games.
“Bruno Fernandes has great statistics but he is the worst team-mate of all. Every time he or a United player loses the ball, he raises his arms to his teammates or the bench. I have played with players like him and their behaviour leaves you fuming. Imagine what the stick would be like if it were Pogba? He’d be massacred by the press”, assured the former Villa striker.
“Fernandes always gets away with it and avoids stick from the media. It’s easy for them to point the finger at say Maguire, Cristiano, Rashford and Sancho. I don’t remember the last time Bruno Fernandes played a decent match. He’s always the one gesturing with his arms. Even when he gives the ball away. He could be offside and would find a reason to blame someone else. That’s the kind of player Bruno Fernandes is. The worst possible teammate”, he concluded.
Fernandes has been present in both of United’s defeats at the start of the campaign and despite playing for 90 minutes in both games has yet to find the target or provide an assist.
