Report: Man United duo had a heated spat in half-time tussle during Brighton clash

Manchester United duo Solskjaer and Fernandes involved in a heated spat during the Brighton clash

According to Manchester Evening News (h/t The Mirror), Manchester United duo Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Bruno Fernandes were involved in a heated spat before half-time in our game against Brighton.

The Red Devils were the second-best team in the first half and went into the break a goal down. Brighton were on the up and threatened the United goal multiple times. It would not be amiss to suggest that we were lucky to go into half-time just one goal down.

Fernandes, a player who constantly demands the best, was not happy. He gave Solskjaer a piece of his mind before half-time as the Norwegian was barking orders at Luke Shaw.

As the club’s top scorer and assists getter, Fernandes holds himself to high standards. It is fair to say that he doesn’t often get the same from those around him.

Speaking after the match, Solskjaer admitted that tensions did risk boiling over in the dressing room at half-time.

“Sometimes after international breaks it takes time – and then maybe the fireworks have to be lit at half-time.”

Whatever was said surely did its job as the Red Devils came out for the second half with fire in their belly.

United laid siege to the Brighton goal and had a number of opportunities. We drew level in the 62nd minute after Marcus Rashford finished clinically past Robert Sanchez.

It got even better in the 83rd minute when Mason Greenwood headed in Paul Pogba’s mishit strike to win all three points for United.

Speaking about the incident, Fernandes went on to add that the result speaks for itself. While some may see it as insubordination, we would like to assert that it is just the fighting spirit that comes with the Portuguese star’s mentality.
