Paul Scholes has pointed out the hypocrisy in Bruno Fernandes’ post-match comments after Manchester United failed to beat Galatasaray.
Goals from Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes were replied with a free-kick from Hakim Ziyech in the first half, with Scott McTominay restoring their 2-goal lead in the second. However, a howler from André Onana and a great finish from Muhammed Kerem Aktürkoğlu saw the Turkish club claw back a draw on the night.
Conceding goals from winning positions has been United’s crux this season, with Bruno Fernandes highlighting this after the game.
“We were on top twice and had far too many chances to score another goal. We were not clinical enough,” Fernandes told TNT Sports.
“Sometimes it is about finding another teammate who is free and not taking the chance yourself. We have to think about the team first and then ourselves.
“What we have been doing in the Champions League is not enough. We have to control games better; this isn’t the first game like this. We have to be smarter and manage the games better.”
Former United player Paul Scholes, however, has blasted these comments, pointing out the hypocrisy in Fernandes after his interview.
“I know he’s talking about mistakes, but he made two big mistakes, giving two stupid fouls away, which led to goals,” Scholes said of Fernandes after the game. “They all need to take responsibility, including himself.”
