If he can’t run like young players and fight for every possible ball, then his place in the starting line-up is over. Gary Neville said that even Bruno Fernandes is whining about the conditions and he should be focusing on the game. The legendary defender noted that Fernandes and Ronaldo are used to whining and it’s not old Premier League anymore. He noted that Manchester United needs more confident players that dominate the pitch. He looked at the results of the City and said that Pep’s team is doing wonders. That’s why Manchester City scored 7 goals against Newcastle and MU could not score even two to win the match.
