Solskjaer hopes to see his players follow Fernandes' mentality

Sun 29 November 2020 | 8:33

Bruno Fernandes has become a key player for the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wishes the rest of the squad to follow his determination and ambitions in football.

The 26-year-old midfielder has displayed extraordinary performances for the

Red Devils

since he moved from Sporting in January. 

Fernandes

is United's top scorer in the

Premier League

this season with six goals and three assists. He has likewise gotten multiple times in the Champions League and set up another. 

The Portugal international has gotten one of the main figures in the changing room just as on the pitch and Solskjaer trusts he can impact others around him. 

"I’ve been [a player] in a team and I like a team where it is not just the manager or the coaches who shout," the Norwegian manager said.

"I want players to take responsibility and put other players into their place at times when that is necessary because they’re out there fighting for one cause and that is for the team to win. 

"I think once in a while you just have to take a rollocking. Not that Bruno is just giving out rollockings, he is also instructing, and I think we can all learn from his mentality and mindset.

"If it is 2-0, he wants 3-0. If it is 4-0, he wants 5-0. He always wants to improve and for the team to improve.

"If we keep on improving, we have a very good opportunity because this squad is going places."

Manchester United sits on the thirteenth place in the Premier League table with eight points behind the leader

Liverpool

, however, they have played two fixtures less. They play against Southampton today prior to Champions League's home clash against

Paris Saint-Germain

on Wednesday.
