‘That has to stop’ – Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes received warning
Gary Neville was critical of the attitude of Manchester United Portuguese stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes.
According to Neville, he noticed that the duo kept flailing their arms at teammates and said that they need to stop doing it.
The ex Manchester United skipper also revealed that it was time for Solskjaer to get his attacking players working together
However, like Pep Guardiola does at Manchester City.
Neville said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football;
“I’ve had my issues with Paul Pogba in midfield”
“I’ve had my issues with Paul Pogba generally and his agent over the last two years”
“Honestly, it’s like having a windscreen where you’ve got six cracks in it and you have to change it anyway”
“but you think the crack that is Paul Pogba is the one you should focus on”
“I don’t think this is a Paul Pogba problem. The reason I say that is that on Saturday I watched Ronaldo and Fernandes up front nothing”
“I saw them flailing their arms a few times at a couple of their team-mates which I didn’t like. That needs to stop!
“I saw wide players with no intensity in their pressing”
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t go back to [Scott] McTominay and Fred and he can’t go back to Matic”
“And Fred because the reality is we know what that delivers”
“It won’t deliver Manchester United success and Solskjaer has brought all these talented players in”
“Pep Guardiola once played with David Silva, [Kevin] De Bruyne, [Leroy] Sane, [Sergio] Aguero and [Raheem] Sterling which is five attacking players.”
“What Solskjaer needs to somehow try and prove is that he as a top manager”
“and his development as a coach this season can get top players to work as hard as the other top players in the league.”
