Bruno Fernandes has decided to back Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag and ignore his national teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after being released by the club.
Bruno Fernandes claimed the reason Ronaldo was axed from the squad was because of his level of indiscipline.
Bruno Fernandes was referring to Ronaldo’s refusal to come on as a substitute against Tottenham in the Premier League.
Bruno Fernandes now knows that if they do not do as they are asked, they will be sent out of the squad due to Ten Hag’s strict rules.
Furthermore, former Manchester United left back Patrick Evra stated that Ronaldo’s departure was everything Fernandes desired in order to become boss on the pitch and also in the dressing room.
The Portuguese midfielder now has the freedom to express himself.
Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tim Howard also claimed Bruno Fernandes will flourish again in the absence of Ronaldo.
Before Manchester United resigned Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes had been the leader in the dressing room; he was in charge of taking penalties and free kicks, but Ronaldo’s arrival limited those chances.
From the time Fernandes joined Manchester United in February 2020 to the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo in September 2021, the midfielder has scored 29 goals in all competitions, with only Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah scoring more goals than Fernandes.
Even in his first season at the club, Fernandes has more assists than Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
Before Fernandes arrival, Manchester United struggled to win matches; Fernandes’ presence changed the face of the team, with only Manchester City having more points than the Red Devils.
Fernandes’ performance against 19th placed Nottingham Forest in the Premier League was exceptional, and more is likely to come from him.
Manchester United have won more games this season without Ronaldo, and many have claimed that he is not allowing young players to play.
Erik Ten Hag, who wants to succeed at Manchester United, has brought a high level of simplicity, and the squad seems to be more organized than ever.
Ten Hag is also looking forward to getting more experts into the team to help him achieve what other former Manchester United managers failed to do.
Ronaldo is no longer a Manchester United player after the club terminated his contract after the explosive interview released by Piers Morgan in which he claimed Ten Hag never respected him.
Ronaldo is now a free agent and has failed to get attention from top European teams due to his wage demands.
However, Al Nassr have put a bid on the table and are currently waiting for Ronaldo to accept the deal to become the highest-paid player in the world.
Although Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League in January, he is likely to reduce his wages just to stay in Europe.
