Bruno Fernandes fires back at Gabriel Agbonlahor after being called the 'worst teammate'

Bruno Fernandes has brushed off Gabriel Agbonlahor's criticism after he said the Manchester United star could be the 'worst teammate'.

The Portuguese star came in for criticism following his abject performance in his side's crushing 4-0 loss to Brentford last weekend.

Agbonlahor slammed the 27-year-old, claiming he could be the 'worst teammate' for his on-field strops.

On talkSPORT, he said: "For me, Fernandes, since he's been in the Premier League, yes he's had great stats, goalscoring and assists but he looks like the worst teammate.

"Every time a player gives it away, every time he gives it away, he throws his arms up at his teammates, he throws his arms up at the bench."

Well, Fernandes has since responded to Agbonlahor's damning claim, saying he's not bothered by his words as he's never played with him.

"It's honestly not something that worries me too much. He's [Agbonlahor] never played with me, he doesn't know how I am," he said as quoted by Portuguese Record.

"Just yesterday I told my wife, who spoke to me [about] this interview and I said 'you know what calms me down?' It's just that two days ago a person called Juan Mata, world champion, European champion, winner of the Champions, all in England, said to me 'you were the best people I've met in football, continue like that, being yourself, with that honesty, this ability to work.'

"If someone says that... you know how I am. Boring, because I demand it, but because I am demanding with myself and I also demand it from others."

Fernandes' message to Agbonlahor comes after Jurgen Klopp hit out at the former Aston Villa man following his assessment of Man United's start to the new season.
