Bruno Fernandes believes that Manchester United has more identity under Ralf Rangnick and revealed that the dressing room unrest is rumors. Rangnick replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in November and has picked up 25 points from his 12 games in charge. The club has moved from sixth to fourth during that period with only Manchester City having collected more points. There have been all sorts of rumors circulating in the dressing room despite this improvement.
“We have to follow what the manager and staff think is the best way for us. Here at this club, I have never heard anyone complain about the tactics and I hope no one would do,” Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes said. “That doesn’t respect the coach’s ideas because I think we have been doing so well since he arrived. We have more identity as a team. I don’t know what people mean by [these stories] honestly. I was doing an interview and they asked me about Jadon [Sancho] doing my celebration. I don’t think that is something that is going in different ways.”
“I saw the goal of [Maguire] and I’m seeing Paul [Pogba] running behind him sliding on his knees. Everyone was happy for him. I was slapping [Maguire’s] head and saying ‘finally you score with that big head’,” he added. “So, I think honestly it’s just people trying to complain and make up stories about this club because we know when someone talks about us they go around the world with their voice and that’s something they want. For us, it means nothing. We stick to the plan and we stick together. That’s the main thing – sticking together and winning together.”
