You’re not doing Man United a favour – Sherwood slams Portuguese star
Tim Sherwood, the former Aston Villa manager, has slammed Manchester United player Bruno Fernandes, alleging the Portuguese has taken his position at the club for granted.
In all competitions, the Portugal international has scored 10 goals and provided 14 assists for Manchester United this season.
Fernandes, 27, joined the Red Devils in January 2020 and was praised as one of the club's top winter transfer recruits due to his ability to hit the ground running right away.
Manchester United have announced that Ajax manager Erik ten Hag will be taking over at Old Trafford at the end of the season with many first team players expected to leave the club, and Fernandes is one of the few players who have been backed to retain their places at the Theatre of Dreams.
But speaking on SuperSportTV after Manchester United’s 3-0 win over Brentford, with Ferdinand scoring the opening goal, Sherwood said, “[No] running back, just play when you get the ball and it suits players like him [Fernandes].
I was disappointed in his season.
“It looked to me like he thinks he’s doing Manchester United a favour by playing for them. He isn’t that good.
He’s talking about [Anthony] Elanga improving and developing, but he needs to realize that he’s still got a big development curve.
“There are so many better players who have worn that shirt before him; he’s not doing them a favour by playing for them.”
