Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has urged his teammates to accept criticisms aimed at them as part and parcel of playing for a big club like Manchester United.

The team have struggled this season, and have been heavily criticised and scrutinised for poor performance in games.

When asked about the criticism of the United team after our comeback win over Brentford, the Portuguese admitted it was part of playing for a massive club.

“It’s Man United, you’ll never stop the noise. Even if you win 10 games in a row, there will be noise around something else. This club is massive and we have to be aware of that,” Fernandes told MUTV.

“If you want to play for a club like this, you have to be aware of that and capable of dealing with it and understand the most important thing is the noise that comes into the dressing room from the players and the staff.

“We know together with the support of our fans [we can do well], which we saw today, we were losing the game and there were some boos, which is quite normal, but you see when it went 1-1, they got behind us.

“They believe in us to get the result and that’s what’s important for us. Everyone that comes to play at Old Trafford has to feel it’s not a good place to play and not a good team to play against.

“We have to get back that feeling, that we’re an aggressive team, a team that when we play at home it’s difficult to beat.”
