Earlier in the week, reports claimed that Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes had vented his anger at half-time.
And The Mirror back this up, saying the Portugal international actually had a go at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself – which was why he was substituted.
“You couldn’t help but hear him,” a source is quoted by the publication as saying.
“He was clearly in a rage after having a face like thunder 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 supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening’.
“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.”
In a diplomatic move, Solskjaer hooked Fernandes and replaced him with Fred knowing his side were heading for defeat.
But while talk of a bust-up has emerged, a United official told the publication: “There was no row. Players often express their views.”
