Bruno Fernandes reveals moment he was 'really mad' at Michael Carrick

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has revealed that he was really mad at Michael Carrick in Villarreal whilst paying tribute to his ex-caretaker boss.

Man United assigned Carrick as caretaker manager following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last weekend.

Carrick’s first game as United acting manager was against Villarreal in the Champions League and he ended up making two big changes.

The Englishman dropped both Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes from his starting lineup, hence why the latter said he was really mad at him after Arsenal win.

The Portuguese star came off the bench and helped United beat Villarreal 2-0 in Spain. He returned back to the starting lineup against Chelsea and Arsenal and he scored against the Gunners but went blank at Stamford Bridge.

Carrick announced he has left Manchester United after taking care of three matches and despite Carrick’s treatment of Fernandes, the Man United No.18 predicts a ‘great’ future for the ex-caretaker boss.

“I was really mad at him [Carrick] in Villarreal but that’s the life of a coach,” Fernandes told BBC.

“I see a great future for him as a coach. He knows how to speak to players. If he gets a chance he can be a top coach.”

Manchester United were awarded a late penalty against Arsenal but it was Cristiano Ronaldo, who played and scored from the penalty spot.

Fernandes was happy with his compatriot for taking the duty and said he trusted Ronaldo that he would score.

“I missed the last one so I trust him in the same way I trust myself,” added Fernandes. “It was time for Cristiano to take the penalty because I took the last one and missed it. It doesn’t matter who gets on the penalty.”

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is expected to start his duty as United boss on Friday and Fernandes has revealed that he and his teammates are looking forward to working with the German boss.

“Everyone is looking forward to work with the new coach [Ralf Rangnick],” Fernandes continued. “When someone new comes in there’s new opportunities.

“Everyone has the chance to get a position. Everyone has to work hard to get the chance to be in the first XI.

“We will meet him [Rangnick] tomorrow and start working on the next game.”
