Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been called 'the worst possible teammate' who 'gets away with murder' in a damning rant.

The Red Devils were thrashed 4-0 by Brentford on Saturday evening and they currently sit bottom of the Premier League table.

Fernandes is one of United's most influential players but was anonymous throughout, something Gabriel Agbonlahor thinks is going under the radar.

In fact, he slammed the Portugal international's attitude and doesn't understand how he isn't criticised like the rest of the United squad.

Agbonlahor told talkSPORT: "It's easy to point at [Harry] Maguire, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Marcus] Rashford, [Jadon] Sancho, for me... Fernandes since he's been in the Premier League, yes he's had great stats 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. I played with players like him and you'd be fuming at him."

Fernandes joined United from Sporting CP in January 2020 and has scored 50 goals in 127 appearances for the club.

He signed a new £250,000-per-week contract in April and took the number eight shirt earlier this summer following Juan Mata's departure.

Agbonlahor claimed the media would be all over former United midfielder Paul Pogba if he displayed Fernandes' petulance during games.

The former Aston Villa striker continued: "He'll press now and then. If that was Pogba, they'd slaughter Pogba in the media. Fernandes gets away with murder. Did you see Fernandes do anything today? Fernandes, for me, I can't remember the last time he had a decent game and he's the one throwing his arms up in the air."

Erik ten Hag is the first United manager to lose his first two league games in charge since John Chapman in 1921.

The 52-year-old was furious at full-time and bluntly called his team's showing 'rubbish'.

"It’s rubbish. It’s poor and we need higher standards than that and it’s clear," he vented to beIN SPORTS.

"I can bring up several things but that looks like excuses. And that is not there in the top we have to deliver and we didn’t do.

"We have to change that’s quite clear we have to start better both games we have to stick to the plan and from the first start we have to switch on and that’s what we didn’t do."
