‘Really winds me up’: Rio Ferdinand so annoyed after what he’s been hearing about Bruno Fernandes this season


Rio Ferdinand has expressed his disbelief at what some say about Bruno Fernandes following Manchester United’s defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Manchester United gave a much better account of themselves at the weekend. Certainly, Arsenal fans may have been nervous during the second-half that they may be denied the win which would have sent them back to the top of the Premier League table.

However, United were unable to turn their pressure into genuine chances, with David Raya being given very little to do during the 90 minutes. Whoscored shows that just two of Manchester United’s 14 attempts on goal went on target.

Of course, Erik ten Hag was unable to call upon Bruno Fernandes, with the Portuguese also missing the 4-0 loss to Crystal Palace on Monday.

It would appear that United failing to score in the two games without Bruno has not come as a surprise to Rio Ferdinand, with the pundit telling FIVE that the last two performances make it abundantly clear just how important he is.

“Can I just say one thing, please look in my eyes please, all of you people who are saying Bruno out, again, I want humble pie eaten, because in the last couple of games, creativity has been a big issue for us. And without that man in our team, we don’t create noise, let alone chances. Trust me,” he said.

“So all these people who keep saying, ‘yeah but he’s not this, he’s not that’, the guy creates chances, score goals, but more importantly, creates chances for others, and makes other players look better. When he hasn’t played, every other attacking player has looked worse off.
