Bruno Fernandes is escorted away by Fred as the Manchester United star squabbles with fans.
Bruno Fernandes, a Manchester United midfielder, disagreed with enraged fans after United’s 4-1 Premier League defeat to Claudio Ranieri’s inspired Watford.
Despite their dismal Premier League defeat at the hands of Watford, Bruno Fernandes appeared to call for Manchester United fans to stop booing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team.
The Portugal midfielder and his teammates are in terrible form in the league, having won just one of their last seven home games, including five defeats.
United players, including goalscorer Donny van de Beek and Jadon Sancho, approached the away fans to clap and apologize after their humiliating 4-1 defeat at Vicarage Road.
With his job on the line, Solskjaer took the lead in clapping the fans, and Fernandes reacted angrily to complaints about the manager, pointing at himself and his teammates.
With Fernandes being led away by Fred, it appears that he wants the blame to fall on the players rather than Solskjaer, implying that the team wants him to stay.
Despite bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club, United are now 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and could drop to fifth place by Saturday evening.
Following two David de Gea penalty saves, including one retaken from Ismaila Sarr’s miss, Joshua King gave the Hornets the lead.
Sarr then made amends to make it 2-0, with Van de Beek netting a goal after coming on at half-time, before Harry Maguire was sent off for two yellow cards.

Joao Pedro added a third goal through De Gea’s legs, and Emmanuel Dennis added a fourth to add to the humiliation.
“We’ve corrected a few things, put some things right,” Solskjaer said before the game.
I’m confident we’ll see a response and a good performance against Watford tomorrow.”
Brinkwire Sport reported earlier this month that United were growing more confident in their ability to appoint Brendan Rodgers as their next manager.
Rio Ferdinand reaffirmed his belief that changes must be made at his former club if they are to reclaim major silverware earlier in the day.
“We’re all quick to talk about players and say they should be out the window, never wear the shirt again,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
“I’m not going to say anything,” she says.
