🔴 Solskjaer denies Fernandes tiredness claims: He's not tired, no chance

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Bruno Fernandes has a special ability to refuel his energy.

The Portugal international’s substitution against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend did nothing to stop wide claims that Fernandes is fatigued.

Solskjaer was thus asked to confirm the reports ahead of facing Fulham on Wednesday.

“His form is very good, he was just voted Player of the Month," Solskjaer said as quoted by Soccer Laduma.

"He's not tired, no, no chance. He is one of the players that runs and covers the ground in every single game, he's very good at recovering and recharging his batteries.

"If he scored his free-kick or if it just had a little air on the ball when Luke [Shaw] put the cross in, he'd have been lauded as the best player in Premier League again. Since he's come in, he's been absolutely immense. He's not tired and if I ask him he'll say there's absolutely no chance that he's tired," Ole continued.

"He's expected to create goals, score goals and sometimes the margins are against him. That free-kick, I saw that one in! There were a couple of passes that he played through and it was marginal as to whether the player was on or off[side].

"So he's always on the verge of creating something, even when he loses the ball, and that's the position I want him in and that's what he's been told to do. He has to be the creative one. I want him to play the passes he sees,” concluded the Norwegian coach.

Meanwhile, United could reclaim top spot and take a two-point lead after Leicester City took first position with Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Chelsea.
