Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted making a mistake over Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United.

United boss claimed he may have played the Portugal international way too much last season, which caught up with him in the latter half of the season.

In an interview with ESPN, Solskjaer said:

“We need to arrive in April and May with players fresh. We need players with that X factor who can make a difference. Bruno [Fernandes] last year for example, maybe I overplayed him but it was because he was so important for us.

 

“Adding these extra players — Jesse [Lingard] coming back, Jadon [Sancho] coming in, Anthony [Martial] being fit again — gives us a lot more to work with.”

Last season Fernandes played 58 games for the Red Devils, scored 28 and assisted 17 goals.
