Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defends Bruno's "outbursts" on the pitch

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come out to defend midfielder Bruno Fernandes who has been called out for shouting at his teammates.

Fernandes who joined United in the January transfer window has come to be known for his hunger and desire to constantly produce results.

However the Portugal international has also shown another side to him that potrays him as a hot head and there has been visible clashes between him and his teammates respectively.

"I’ve been in a team and I like a team where it is not just the manager or the coaches who shout,’ the boss said.

"I want players to take responsibility and put other players into their place at times when that is necessary because they’re out there fighting for one cause and that is for the team to win.

"I think once in a while you just have to take a rollocking. Not that Bruno is just giving out rollockings, he is also instructing, and I think we can all learn from his mentality and mindset.

"If it is 2-0, he wants 3-0. If it is 4-0, he wants 5-0. He always wants to improve and for the team to improve."

"It is a mentality that is arguably taking some time to transmit itself to the rest of the team. ‘We all need to step up and improve. Especially in difficult times — and Bruno has done that."
