Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hails Bruno Fernandes for Sir Alex Ferguson throwback

“Bruno isn’t just giving out rollickings, he’s also instructing players. We can all learn from his mentality and mindset. If it’s 4-0, he wants 5-0. He always wants the team to improve.”

Solskjaer insists he is happy with his side’s consistency, pointing to the fact Liverpool are the only team that have picked up more points than them since the arrival of Fernandes.

“Teams that win the league put good runs together,” he said. “If you look at the last 40 games, we win two, draw one, win two, lose one.

“Look at the stats since Bruno came in after the Burnley game (in January). Only Liverpool have taken more points, so we are getting there.

“We did not start the league on a par with everyone else because of Europe and a pre-season we didn’t have. Now we are showing what we’re capable of.”
