The pair were filmed arguing after Lindelof was at fault for Sevilla's winning goal in the Europa League semi-final.
But Fernandes says he remains good friends with Lindelof.
"He is one of the people with whom I have the best relationship in the club, also because he speaks Portuguese, and as everyone saw he speaks well," Fernandes told Portuguese outlet A Bola.
"Those were obviously the first words he learned in Portugal, it is always what we teach them.
"But it was a game situation that none took to heart. It ended and we went directly to our countries, he to Sweden and I to Portugal.
"At the farewell we hugged, we leaned our heads and didn't even need to talk to each other.
"We stayed there for those two seconds hugging and we realised what we wanted to say to each other."
