CAPE TOWN – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in for some criticis from Bruno Fernandes at half-time of their capitulation at home against Tottenham Hotspur last week.

The reports of Fernandes’ criticism have led to doubts whether Solskjaer was still at the wheel, with others claiming that th club had approached former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Having started the gamee against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs well after taking an early lead, by half-time, the men from London led 4-1 against ten men after Anthony Martial was shown a red card for striking Erik Lamela.

According to United insiders, Fernandes was ‘in a rage after having a face like thinder 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 supposd to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening’,” the insider was quoted by the UK’s Sunday Mirror.

“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.

Last week’s defeat at home to Spurs leaves United on three points after the first three Premier League games.
