Video Suggests Bruno Fernandes Has Been Let Down By Manchester United Teammates

Bruno Fernandes has been heavily criticised for his Manchester United form this season, but one video provides proof to suggest he may have just been let down by his teammates.

Previously Fernandes has been at the heart of everything good for United, since joining the team in January 2020 when they were struggling for form.

His ability to hit the ground running in spectacular style meant that his new team qualified for the Champions League, when that goal had previously looked loss, and then last season he was integral again, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team finished second.

However this season he has been accused of not living up to those standards and his new contract was even criticised by one pundit.

A compilation video of his best work this season shows he should have many more assists than the 12 he's provided, which is already more than anyone else in the squad, with the amount of chances he's created.

Of course, it's not as simple as just looking at that video and suggesting that the criticism is completely unfounded, but equally it's also not as simple to dismiss it.

Like much of the narrative around United this season, it's too simple to claim one man is the problem at the club, as much as it is to deny they have nothing to do with it.

Fernandes has also not been as good in front of goal this season as previously, and even missed a crucial penalty against Arsenal at the weekend.

He has also lost the ball on multiple occasions in games, something that Ralf Rangnick's side have struggled to deal with considering the paucity of their midfield.

The same arguments can be made of both Cristiano Ronaldo and David de Gea about how they have both positively and negatively impacted the team.

Ronaldo's goals, especially at certain moments, have really saved the team this season but he has also been part of the problem, failing to find the goal against the likes of Wolves, Southampton, Watford and Everton in games United haven't won.

His inability to press teams from the front also stopped Ralf Rangnick from picking the 37-year-old early in his tenure, before the German ditched his gegenpressing plan.

Equally De Gea has been brilliant with his saves at the back but his lack of passing ability has meant the team can't as effectively build from the back.
