Man Utd boss Solskjaer defends Fernandes: Bruno a passionate man

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskajer insists he can turn results around after defeat to Watford.

Solskjaer also defended Bruno Fernandes, who took issue with the away support jeering his manager at the end of the 4-1 loss.

He said: "I always have belief in myself but, of course, at the moment it's a difficult time for us. I can trust every single one out there to give what they have, the staff are fantastic but the results at the moment, are difficult, of course. Yeah, I believe we can turn this around."

Solskjaer also said: "I understand the fans who've supported the club through thick and thin. They've been fantastic over the last few years. It's a difficult period. We've had a hard time since Sir Alex left at the club.

"The fans who have been with us for the last years, since I came in, they've been unbelievable. They've understood the situation. The signings this summer with Rapha, Jadon and Cristiano raised everyone's expectations, rightly so, because we brought some top players in. With second last year, we hoped to kick on but we can't seem to find form.

"I understand and that's their right to show their opinion. Bruno is such a passionate boy and a man. He knows that the club can change quickly."
