Graeme Souness says Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes ‘would not last five minutes in my dressing room’
Graeme Souness believes Manchester United and Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes ‘would not have lasted five minutes in my dressing room’ because of his petulance towards his own teammates.
Fernandes has been an instant hit for United following his arrival from Sporting last year, scoring 40 goals and registering 25 assists in 80 appearances since moving to Old Trafford.
The 26-year-old has also been widely praised by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his United teammates for his leadership in the dressing room.
But Souness has criticised Fernandes for the way he acts towards his teammates when he does not receive the ball.
‘Hes an exceptionally talented boy, there is so much to like about him. A great striker of the ball, when he shoots he makes the goalkeeper work,’ Souness told ITV Sport.
‘I played with players that would not be accepting of the thing you just touched on [petulance], you know he doesnt get the ball and he is waving his hands around.
‘He would not have lasted more than five minutes in my dressing room, but he is a wonderful talented boy.
‘It would be more along the lines of who do you think you are? We play as a team, we win together, we lose together.
‘Sometimes you will make a bad pass, sometimes you will not see the whole picture.
‘So all that nonsense, shaking your head and waving your arms at your own teammates, is a no no for me.’
