Video: Bruno Fernandes caught demanding a substitution from the bench

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes doesn’t just tell his teammates what to do but apparently the backroom staff as well judging by a video that went viral.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faced plenty of criticism after the defeat to PSG and not necessarily because of the result but because of some strange decision making.

Fans were not pleased by the decision to not substitute Fred at half-time when it seemed as though he was on course to being sent off.

That eventually happened in the second half when the tenacious Brazilian picked up a second yellow but it wasn’t the only thing supporters were frustrated with.

Many felt Solskjaer didn’t make the right substitutions and was rather reactive instead of proactive in the 3-1 loss to the French champions.

In the video, Bruno appears to be calling for the bench to make a substitution, hinting the team were being overrun or perhaps not adequately set up.

While there’s nothing too strange about what’s going on, some fans felt it reflected a bigger issue and proved Solskjaer’s cluelessness as he had to be told what to do by a player of his.

Nonetheless, Bruno is not known for being disrespectful so it’s unlikely he had any bad intentions and he was simply being his usual demanding self.
