Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why he replaced Bruno Fernandes in the Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday night at Old Trafford.
Fernandes was not at his best against the Reds and failed to inspire his teammate during his time on the field, he lost 58% of his passes at Anfield, the lowest success rate of any player who started the match in any of the teams.
Fernandes was replaced in the 89th minute by Mason Greenwood, but the Portuguese international was not satisfied with the decision.
Solskjaer admits that the reason for the substitution was to get a winner and, when asked about the substitution, Solskjaer said in his post-match press conference: “It was a tactical decision. “ Obviously Bruno has been trying very hard for us in every game since he arrived. He’s been here and he’s been running more or less every game.
Next up for Manchester United is a clash with Craven Cottage who will travel to play Fulham in their next Premier League game on Wednesday.
