A report has dismissed claims that Bruno Fernandes had an argument with Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at half-time in their 6-1 loss to Tottenham.
The Daily Mirror claimed on Saturday that they had a ‘furious half-time bust-up’ with Fernandes screaming “We are supposed to be Manchester United!” in the dressing room.
A source told the newspaper: “You couldn’t help but hear him.

“He was clearly in a rage after having a face like thunder when he raced down the tunnel.
“He laid into team-mates, accusing them of not upholding the proud name of Manchester United. He kept yelling, ‘We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening’.
“It was clear that the manager also came under fire because he was going on about the wrong tactics.
“There were other raised voices, but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force.”
However, a Man Utd official denied the report of any row against Spurs, he said: “There was no row. Players often express their views.”
And now Sport Witness has spoken to people close to the Portuguese playmaker and they have said that the report is ‘lies’.
The report added that there has been ‘no conflict between the player and his coach’.
