Leeds United v Manchester United: Match in pictures

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes accused Bruno Fernandes “too soft” despite his impressive display against Leeds United.

Fernandes, 27, scored at half-time and assisted Anthony Elanga as The Red Devils beat the opponent 4-2 inside Premier League on Sunday.

It was far from favorable for Ralf Rangnick’s side, who took a two-goal lead in the space of two minutes and required bench heroes from Fred and Elanga to advance from Elland Road with three points.

Rodrigo halved his deficit early in the second half and Raphinha equalized seconds later with a goal that left the visitors, and Fernandes in particular, frustrated.

The Portuguese felt he deserved a free kick after Adam Forshaw challenged him to an assist, and he remained on the floor as Raphinha poked a slot in Daniel James’ pass.

However, Scholes insists there were no fouls on Fernandes and that he must have shown more grit when receiving the ball in his defensive third position.

“I think Fernandes has to be stronger,” the former England midfielder told Premier League Productions, according to Metro. “He was almost looking for a foul before anything happened and I don’t think it was a foul.

“Fernandes has to be stronger there, that’s a bit too soft. He holds his head high looking for a foul before coming on.”

Fernandes sees things very differently and claims Forshaw stomped on the foot he was standing in before the England player released James on the left side of the box.

“I thought it was a foul because when I passed the ball with my right foot, he stamped my left foot,” said Fernandes. MUTV.

“Obviously I didn’t see him touching the ball when I made the pass. It was England, no? It’s English football so I have to get used to it, it’s okay.”
