Fernandes apologizes for Man Utd’s poor performance vs Bournemouth

Manchester United’s captain, Bruno Fernandes, has issued a public apology for the team’s humiliating 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth, acknowledging a lack of effort and quality in their performance. This unexpected loss, the first-ever at home to Bournemouth, prompted boos from disappointed fans.

Erik ten Hag, under increasing pressure, expressed doubts about the squad’s consistent quality at the highest level after the match. Fernandes, assuming responsibility for the poor display, stated, “I want to apologize for the performance. It was not acceptable, starting with me.”

The Portuguese star emphasized that the team collectively agrees on the subpar nature of their performance, highlighting deficiencies in quality, effort, and aggression compared to their previous game against Chelsea. United’s inconsistency, with 11 losses in 23 matches this season, remains a perplexing issue for Fernandes.

Reflecting on the team’s erratic form, Fernandes told MUTV, “When we win a game, the next one, we don’t perform in the same way we did before. I don’t know if it’s like a lack of concentration or focus or something else, but it’s something that we have to be aware of.”
