Manchester United forward, Bruno Fernandes has finally explained the rift between him and former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo after claims that he criticized the estranged Red Devils legend.
Fernandes hit back at the claims that he criticized Cristiano Ronaldo after the Manchester derby.
Fernandes scored for Manchester United as they defeated Manchester City 2-1 on Saturday.
The Red Devils registered their fifth consecutive victory in the Premier League, continuing a brilliant form that started after Erik ten Hag’s decision to freeze Ronaldo out of his squad.
Speaking after the game, Fernandes told BT Sport: “[We] used to be individuals, now we are a team. You can see a proper team that works for each other.”

Some interpreted the 28-year-old’s comments as aiming a dig at Ronaldo, who joined Al Nassr mid-season. But Fernandes has responded by strongly denying these claims with a post on social media.
“I know that it is difficult to see Manchester United doing well, [but I] don’t have anything to [say] about us on the news apart from good things,” the attacking midfielder posted on his Instagram story.
“Cristiano was part of our team for half the season and as I said in many interviews, everyone since Liverpool is being amazing and acting like a proper team and you can see the results.
“Don’t use my name to attack Cristiano. We carry on!”
