Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes 'wasn't happy' with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decision

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he made Bruno Fernandes upset last weekend.

Fernandes has proven to be one of United's best signings in recent years since joining from Sporting Lisbon back in January. There have been several matches where United have had to rely on the midfielder to help get a result over the line, giving Solskjaer a headache on how to win without the 26-year-old.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's Carabao Cup tie against Everton, Solskjaer admitted that he would need to rest Fernandes at some point.

“Bruno is one that I also have to protect,” Solskjaer said.

"I never said that [he would rest Bruno Fernandes].

“I took him off last game (Leeds United) and he wasn't happy — Bruno is one of those who recovers very quickly, but then again if games are won, why not rest him then."

Manchester United are set to face a quite tough clash with Leicester City on Boxing Day this Saturday.
