Liverpool hero, Graeme Souness, has slammed Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes’s ‘nonsense’ antics during his side’s Euro 2020 4-2 defeat against Germany over the weekend.
Souness said that Fernandes ‘would not last five minutes’ in his dressing room after the 26-year-old struggled to recapture his club form on the international stage in Portugal’s defeat to Germany.
Fernandes took aim at his Portugal teammates on a couple of occasions before being substituted in the 64th minute against Germany and Souness was unimpressed by the player’s attitude.
“He [Fernandes] is an exceptionally talented boy, there is so much to like about him. A great striker of the ball, when he shoots, he makes the goalkeeper work,” Souness told ITV.
“I played with players that would not be accepting of the thing you just touched on [petulance], you know he doesn’t get the ball and he is waving his hands around.
“He would not have lasted more than five minutes in my dressing room, but he is a wonderful, talented boy.
“It would be more along the lines of who do you think you are? We play as a team, we win together, we lose together.
“Sometimes you will make a bad pass, sometimes you will not see the whole picture.
“So all that nonsense, shaking your head and waving your arms at your own teammates, is a no no for me.”
Portugal’s next game at the Euro 2020 is against France on Wednesday.
