Bruno Fernandes is angry with the higher-ups at Man United.

Despite a large flurry of activity at Old Trafford in terms of transfers on deadline day, the general atmosphere is still one of pathos. The club did not meet some of their core transfer requirements going into the window and there is a strong consensus that even amongst the individuals signed, the club could have done much better.

Fans have echoed this sentiment from a while now and this issue coming at the back of a large loss to Tottenham Hotspur doesn’t help matters.

However, the supporters may have a partner in their distaste within the club’s playing ranks itself.

According to Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast, Bruno Fernandes is angry with the board of Manchester United. In particular, the Portuguese midfielder is unhappy with the transfer activity, or lack thereof, that United indulged in during the summer.

The source claims that Fernandes expected a higher calibre of players joining and effort being made to improve the squad quality when he signed in January. As such, the business so far has left him disappointed.

Further still, the 26-year-old allegedly feels that even the players that United did acquire simply aren’t up to the level that the club requires to challenge for the top spots and silverware.

The club’s runaway success story of last campaign does have a point if these opinions are indeed his. Ole Gunnar Solskjær simply did not get the backing or the players he needed to fully unleash the revolution he intends to bring about at Old Trafford.

In that case, having a player as important and impactful as Fernandes be unhappy does not help the club’s cause either.

At the same time, given the dire nature of the situation, the club does not have to wait too long for the winter window to amend things.
