Bruno Fernandes Tells Fans To Boo The Players Instead Of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer After Watford Loss

In the aftermath of Manchester United's humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford this afternoon, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led his players over to the travelling away fans.

As he did so, the Norwegian boss started to attract most of the fan's ire, causing Bruno Fernandes to intervene.

The Portugal international appeared to try and reason with the fans who were booing Solskjaer, by getting them to turn their frustration onto the players instead - who had just put in a thoroughly abject performance.

The trip to Vicarage Road was viewed as a must-win match for the United manager, with the club having won just one of their previous six Premier League outings.

Watch the Fernandes incident for yourself, below.

Many fans online were just as furious with Solskjaer as those who were in attendance this afternoon.

Some even called out Fernandes for his staunch defence of the 48-year-old, suggesting that he could follow his boss out of the exit door.

The game could hardly have gone worse for the Red Devils, who also lost captain Harry Maguire to a red card on the hour mark.

The England international, who scored twice for his country during the international break, received two yellow cards for a pair of rash tackles, perfectly encapsulating his recent struggles for the side.

Donny van der Beek did manage to score his first goal of the season, but it wasn't enough to dig his side out of trouble.

Goals from Joao Pedro, Josh King, Ismaila Sarr and Emmanuel Bonaventure condemned United to another crushing defeat - and possibly sealed Solskjaer's fate for good.
