Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has defended himself after he was criticised club legend Paul Scholes.
The former England midfielder was critical of Fernandes, calling him too soft in their 4-2 win over Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday.
Fernandes went down in pain during the build-up to Leeds’ equaliser in the game, when they made it 2-2 in the second half.
Scholes stated on Premier League Productions: “I think Fernandes has to be stronger.
“He’s almost looking for a foul before anything happens and I don’t think it is a foul.
“Fernandes has got to be stronger there, that’s a little bit too soft. His head is up in the air looking for a foul before he comes in.”
In response, Fernandes said to MUTV: “I think it was a foul because when I passed the ball with my right foot he stamped on my left.
“Obviously, I didn’t see if he touched the ball when I made the pass.
“It’s England, no? It’s English football so I have to get used to it, it’s okay.”
