Bruno Fernandes makes an honest revelation as dressing room worries arise

According to, Manchester United had a forgettable weekend after finishing second to Manchester City in Sunday’s highly anticipated derby match. Erik ten Hag’s team gained an early lead thanks to Marcus Rashford before falling to a spectacular second-half comeback from the Premier League champions, leaving United 11 points below the top four. Unfortunately for Ten Hag, the setback is unlikely to relieve the strain that has mounted on him in recent weeks.

Ten Hag’s prospects of staying in his position after this season are believed to be determined by his ability to qualify for next year’s Champions League, so the Dutchman is now facing a make-or-break run of matches. With speculation over his long-term future sure to continue in the lead-up to United’s match against Everton on Saturday, Mirror Football brings you all the latest news from in and around Old Trafford…

Fernandes’ candid admission.

Bruno Fernandes has confessed that Manchester United have an uphill task to finish in the top four after falling further behind their local rivals over the weekend. Not only were United severely thrashed by Manchester City in Sunday’s derby, but clubs surrounding them, like Aston Villa, performed well in the fight for Europe.

While Fernandes emphasised that no one at the club would give up on their aim of qualifying for the Champions League, he was honest enough to realise that achieving so would now be everything but easy.

Ten Hag makes an unsatisfactory point.

Erik ten Hag argued that there was no significant difference between Manchester United and Manchester City, despite the fact that his team was trounced in Sunday’s derby.

United took an early lead via Marcus Rashford, but City controlled the game before responding with three second-half goals. United had just 27% position and three shots in total during the afternoon. Ten Hag, on the other hand, downplayed the difference between the two teams in his post-match interview, believing that his squad was unfortunate to lose the match.
