United were dismantled 4-0 by Brighton on Saturday evening and the result means they're mathematically unable to qualify for next season's Champions League.
The Red Devils have underwhelmed all season and tensions have reached a boiling point within the fanbase.
'You're not fit to wear the shirt' echoed from the AMEX Stadium away end as Leandro Trossard made it four and Fernandes was quizzed about it at full-time.
When asked if the assessment was fair, the Portugal international told Sky Sports: "I include myself on that. What we did today, what I did today, was not enough to be in the Manchester United shirt and I accept that."

Fernandes signed a new contract last month to take him up to £250,000-per-week and one of United's highest earners.
The 27-year-old has had a poor season by his own high standards, but is holding himself accountable in a tricky period.
It's something United fans think enough of their squad aren't doing and praised Fernandes on social media.
One commented: "This is proper accountability."
Another said: "Bruno is definitely one of the real ones."
A third put: "Doesn’t make it acceptable but refreshing to hear."
While someone tweeted: "What we want to hear."
Moises Caicedo opened the scoring with a long-range drive which went through the legs of Victor Lindelof and past David de Gea in the United net.
The Ecuador starlet was linked with a move to United in 2020 and he's previously said he'd love to play for them.
Graham Potter's side controlled the first half and could've doubled their lead through Danny Welbeck, who put his effort just wide after a Raphael Varane mistake.
United interim manager Ralf Rangnick attempted to change it up at halftime by bringing on Fred and Edinson Cavani for Nemanja Matic and Anthony Elanga.
Brighton then responded by scoring three goals in 11 minutes as Marc Cucurella fired home his first goal for the club.
Pascal Groß then showed his composure in the United penalty area to touch home a third before Trossard bundled home a fourth.
United did have the ball in the back of the net through Cavani, but the veteran forward was ruled offside.
