Bruno Fernandes has been slammed for his behaviour before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked by Manchester United. The club legend was relieved of his duties on Sunday after their 4-1 drubbing against Watford.
The Norwegian had been under severe pressure following humiliating losses to Liverpool and Manchester City and was unable to save his job as the 4-1 defeat at relegation battlers Watford proved to be the last straw.
A number of former United stars, including Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand, have expressed their sympathies towards Solskjaer, with players coming under fire for failing to perform for him.
Several United stars have since issued statements saying it should have been a collective responsibility, but talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan insisted their words are now futile and was particularly critical of Fernandes.
The former Crystal Palace chairman slammed the Portugal star for his antics at Watford and even told him to ‘shut up’ as he erupted into an angry rant over the United players’ role in Solskjaer’s sacking.
“The team reflects leadership – leadership was embodied on the exit interview,” Jordan said on talkSPORT.
“I’m not interested in who your friends were, I’m not interested in what acquaintances you’ve made, I’m not interested in how you have enjoyed yourself at Manchester United or how Man United represents you.
“Man United is a winning machine; that’s what it should represent. Not a glad-handing, back-slapping, jobs-for-the-boys mentality where excuses are built up.
“It is a winning machine that was built up over 20 years by Alex Ferguson and it has become anything but that now.
“And that is in part because of the Glazer’s ownership because the economics of Manchester United have changed, because of the way it is controlled has changed.
“But also, because the culture of the players has been allowed to get out of hand. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in that dressing room, with the ‘Nicest Man in the World’ hat on, cannot control the expectations of those players.
“You’ve got Harry Maguire running around putting fingers in his ears whilst playing for England against Albania and his next game out, you get that. You’ve got him two years ago running around on a Greek island giving it the big’un and he probably got away with a lot more than people understand.

“De Gea comes out, what are you? You didn’t do that much either, you’re talking about they can’t defend. You can’t save that much either! Shut up! Look at Fernandes; Fernandes is waving at the crowd. Did you see your own performance?
“The whole of that team, with a very few exceptions, were appalling and there should be an element of self-pride if nothing else.”
United take on Villarreal on Tuesday evening in a bid to qualify from their Champions League group with one game to spare.
