Paul Parker believes there are some Manchester United players who don’t like Bruno Fernandes due to his attitude.
Fernandes is arguably one of the players who show their frustrations on the pitch when things don’t go their way.
The Portuguese midfielder would visibly whine over every tackle he made or endured in matches when he doesn’t get the support of the referees.
And that attitude is something that worries Paul Parker about the ex-Sporting Lisbon midfielder.
Parker’s comments came after the midfielder, who is touted as one of the best in the Premier League, scored twice during Manchester United’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.
“Bruno Fernandes worries me,” said the 57-year-old former footballer, speaking to ‘talkSPORT’ radio.
“By the way he behaves, I’m sure there are players on the team who don’t like him or what he does on the pitch.”
“He pays too much attention to everything. If he is fouled, he tells everyone to get up. something like.”
The former Manchester United player recalled an incident during the Aston Villa game involving striker Ollie Watkins. Bruno Fernandes fell and Watkins held out his hand to help him up.
“Watkins tried to help him, he’s a good guy, there’s no malice in him,” Parker explained.
“He felt he hadn’t done anything wrong and wanted to help him up, he wasn’t rude. But Bruno Fernandes pulled his arms towards his face and disrespected him.”
The prolific midfielder would provide two assists to help Manchester United beat Brentford 3-1 on Wednesday in the Premier League.
