Reports claimed the Portuguese midfielder lashed out at his Manchester United team-mates and questioned Solskjaer’s tactics when they were 4-1 down at the break and down to 10-men after Anthony Martial was sent off.
He was hooked off at half-time, despite scoring United’s only goal from the spot, and it had been claimed that he was upset with his manager for substituting him.
‘He [Fernandes] was clearly in a rage after having a face like thunder when he raced down the tunnel,’ a United insider told the Sunday Mirror.
‘He laid into team-mates, accusing them of not upholding the proud name of Manchester United. He kept yelling, “We are supposed to be Manchester United. This shouldn’t be happening”.
‘It was clear that the manager also came under fire because he was going on about the wrong tactics.
‘There were other raised voices, but his was the one which seemed to carry the main force.’
However, those close to Fernandes have moved to deny the claims.
According to Sport Witness, the account of a half-time bust-up was branded by his camp as ‘lies’.
Fernandes has been in sensational form since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January.
He scored 14 goals and provided 10 assists in 26 appearances for United so far and he has started every available Premier League game since he joined the club.
