Bruno Fernandes was barely involved in the game as Portugal suffered a 4-2 defeat and Graeme Souness has launched an attack on the Manchester United midfielder for his poor display.
“He’s an exceptionally talented boy, there is so much to like about him. A great striker of the ball, when he shoots he makes the goalkeeper work,” Graeme Souness said about Bruno Fernandes during ITV’s coverage of the Euro 2020 game between Portugal and Germany.
“I played with players that would not be accepting of the thing you just touched on [petulance], you know he doesn’t get the ball and he is waving his hands around. He would not have lasted more than five minutes in my dressing room, but he is a wonderful talented boy.”
“It would be more along the lines of who do you think you are?” the ex-Liverpool captain added. “We play as a team, we win together, we lose together.
“Sometimes you will make a bad pass, sometimes you will not see the whole picture. So all that nonsense, shaking your head and waving your arms at your own teammates, is a no-no for me.”
As for Souness, it looks like he has a thing for lambasting Man United players, although Bruno is not usually under his fire. Dare we suppose that the former Liverpool player and manager might be a bit biased?
