Bruno Fernandes states Man Utd players’ position on Solskjaer as manager

Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has insisted that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has the full backing of the players.

Solskjaer is under contract at Old Trafford until 2024 but has been under fire after a few disappointing results.

Early elimination from the Carabao Cup and unconvincing displays in both the Premier League and Champions League have raised concerns about the manager.

But after a 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday, Fernandes told Brazil’s TNT Sports: “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.

“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. Every day we are learning something new. But football is the present and it’s the now.”
