'Embarrassing' - Alan Shearer Ruthlessly Rips Into Bruno Fernandes For Fan Gesture

Bruno Fernandes has been branded "embarrassing" by Alan Shearer for his reaction to Manchester United fans booing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following their humiliating defeat at Watford.


Solskjaer was booed as he led his then-players over to the travelling away fans at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

That prompted Fernandes to intervene, appearing to tell the Man United supporters to turn their frustration onto the players instead of the Norwegian.


However, Fernandes asking fans not to boo Solskjaer did NOT go down well with Premier League legend Shearer who ripped into his gesture.

Speaking on Match of the Day via Football 365, he said: "Well that's pretty embarrassing I think from Bruno Fernandes because they've got the chance to save the manager's back in the performance that they put in.

"So, for him to say 'don't just blame the manager, blame all the players'. Absolutely they should [blame] the players because it's quite clear from their attitude, from their performance that the players don't want the manager."

Shearer continued by claiming Man United players have 'stopped running for their manager' and have 'lost respect' for him in a damning assessment.

"They've stopped running for their manager," he added. "They've lost respect for the manager and you have a player coming out and saying 'they didn't know what to do with the ball.'

"Well, that does lie at the manager's feet because that's no plan, no tactics.


"But the players can go out, the players can run around, they can have effort, they can have attitude and they had none of that.

"So that tells you what they think of the manager."

Solskjaer has officially been sacked by Man United ahead of The Red Devils' Champions League match against Villarreal next Tuesday.
