Bruno Fernandes holds crisis talks with Man Utd squad in Anfield dressing room after Man Utd's embarrassing 4-0 mauling

BRUNO FERNANDES allegedly held a dressing room crisis meeting after Manchester United were thrashed at Liverpool.

Ralf Rangnick’s side were completely blown away as two goals from Mo Salah plus strikes from Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz sealed a 4-0 win for Jurgen Klopp’s men.


The Portuguese midfielder, 27, was the player summoned to face the media after the shambolic display rather than captain Harry Maguire.

And Fernandes issued a grovelling apology to the club’s supporters for the result.

Interim boss Rangnick revealed that the ex-Sporting Lisbon ace then led a dressing-room talk at Anfield following the dismal defeat.

He said: “We had a conversation in the locker room right now where Bruno also said something towards the team, and I said something.

“In the end, right now, it doesn't help. We have to hope for some injured players coming back for Saturday and then just take it game-by-game.”

Fernandes told Sky Sports: “Obviously it's a bad result again. There's not much more that I can say.

“I think apologise to the fans, it will never be enough, but obviously there's nothing we can do now.

“The fans don't deserve us to play this way. They deserve more from us.

“The way they support us until the end, the way they stay even after the result to applaud us, they deserve much more from us.

“We have to raise our level higher. It is what it is.”

Asked if the effort of his team-mates was there, he remarked: “I think everyone runs. I think there is effort from everyone. I don't think someone does not give 100 per cent.

“We have to do it for ourselves, the clubs, the fans and everyone.

“We have to say things but that is kept in the dressing room. Now it is over we have to think of the next game.”

He added: “Liverpool is fighting for the title. We are not fighting for nothing at the moment. You can see the difference by the points.

“I don't need to be here saying about the difference of the level.”

United's legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson looked heartbroken in the stands as he helplessly watched on last night.

Former defender Gary Neville was left fuming with United when speaking on commentary for Sky Sports, as he blasted the squad as a "waste of space".

And his ex-team-mate Roy Keane ripped into the club as he declared that the team is devoid of leaders, heart, soul and quality.
