Bruno Fernandes: Manchester United players fully behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Bruno Fernandes missed a stoppage-time penalty as Aston Villa beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford on Saturday to prevent the Red Devils moving top of the Premier League.

Bruno Fernandes has declared that the Manchester United players are fully behind manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils came back from 2-0 down to beat Spanish club Villarreal 3-2 in the Champions League on Wednesday night ending a run of three games without a win.

Solskjaer has received criticism for his selection and the team’s poor performance.

Nevertheless, ahead of Sunday’s showdown with rivals Liverpool, Fernandes has rejected any suggestion that United’s star players are not playing for the Norwegian.

“Of course, obviously, he is our coach. We follow him every day. We show that. We follow his ideas and we will continue to do so,” Fernandes told TNT Sports.

“We believe in our coach and our staff. We need to do what the coach tells us because our coach is the maximum exponent of what we must respect. He has been here for three years and we’ve done good things. It’s true that we haven’t won anything up to now, but the team has shown it has grown a lot.

“We have a lot to improve on and the coach also knows there has to be some improvement at their end but that is part of football.”

United currently sit five points adrift of Premier League frontrunners Chelsea.
