Bruno Fernandes ‘frustrating’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with bad habit at Man Utd

Bruno Fernandes' standard of passing is frustrating Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, according to former Premier League midfielder Jamie O'Hara.

Fernandes has been sensational since signing for the Red Devils and even made history in December by becoming the first Premier League footballer to win the Player of the Month award four times in a calendar year.

But the Portuguese has been criticised in the past for going missing in big games, with Roy Keane saying it is for this reason he can't be compared to someone like Eric Cantona.

And O'Hara, who played for Tottenham and Wolves, believes Fernandes' bad habit of giving the ball away a little too easily is leaving his boss frustrated.

"Bruno Fernandes gets built up massively, everyone talks about him being this brilliant player and he is – he's been fantastic for Man United," said O'Hara on talkSPORT.

But in the last few weeks when I've watched him against the big clubs, Liverpool and Man City, he's been poor. The standard of his passing… Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did a little interview where he says Fernandes 'frustrates him', and I can actually see that because he gets in great positions sometimes but he gives the ball away for fun!

"Everyone slaughters Paul Pogba, people give him a hard time, people give Harry Maguire a hard time, I think Scott McTominay was absolutely fantastic for Man United against Liverpool and Luke Shaw.

"But Bruno Fernandes, I'm looking at his performance thinking, 'Come on, you can score loads of penalties but in those big moments if you want to win the league you need to step up a bit more'. He's been going missing in these big games."
