Bruno Fernandes' bait sometimes confuses Solskjaer

Bruno Fernandes' bait sometimes confuses Solskjaer – Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, sometimes feels confused by some of the passes made by Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes. However, he admits that Fernandes' strength is important for the Red Devils.

Man United in the Boxing Day match of Week 15 of the Premier League visited the King Power Stadium on Saturday 26 December 2020. Solskjaer's team had won 2x over Brendan Rodgers' troops, but only managed to bring home one point at the end of the match.

The visitors took the lead in the 23rd minute. The Red Devils' opening goal was scored by England National Team player Marcus Rashford after ending a pass from Bruno Fernandes.

However, Man United's advantage could not last long. Harvey Barnes scored a goal in the 31st minute through a hard kick which Man United goalkeeper David de Gea failed to contain.

Bruno Fernandes returned to bring Man United ahead after receiving a cooked pass from Edinson Cavani. However, this advantage could not be maintained because Jamie Vardy scored after taking advantage of Ayoze Perez's bait.

After the match, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he sometimes still feels confused with Bruno Fernandes. The coach from Norway sometimes can't predict the pass of the player from Portugal.

“He is the type of player who will create opportunities for you,” said Solskjaer to talkSPORT, quoting Metro, Sunday ((27/12/2020).

"He keeps wanting to make chances and take risks, and I don't mind that."

“Sometimes I can pull my hair out because I see him easily making a difficult pass simple. I'll let it be Bruno and let it be him and play as he wants," he continued.

Based on these results, Man United is now in 4th place in the Premier League standings. They are linked four points from Liverpool, the top.
