BRUNO FERNANDES has become the latest Premier League big-hitter to blast Gabby Agbonlahor.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hit out at the talkSPORT pundit following his criticism of Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat at Brentford.
And now Red Devils star Fernandes has fired a warning shot after he was singled out by Agbonlahor in a scathing assessment of United’s recent form.
Former Aston Villa striker Agbonlahor reckons Fernandes is not pulling his weight at Old Trafford.
And he questioned why the Portuguese ace was not getting criticised like teammates Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford.
Agbonlahor said: “It’s easy to point the finger at Maguire, Ronaldo, Rashford, Sancho.

“For me, Fernandes… Since he arrived in the Premier League, yes he has had great goals and assists, but he looks like the worst teammate.
“Whenever a player or himself loses the ball, he raises his arms towards his teammates and the bench.

“Have you seen him do anything? It’s easy to talk about Maguire, Ronaldo, Rashford, Sancho… I can’t remember the last time Fernandes played a decent game.

“Even when he gives you the ball, he blames you. This is the type of player, Bruno Fernandes. He is the worst possible teammate.’
But Fernandes has now dismissed Agbonlahor’s comments as hearsay, claiming he does not care about the pundit’s opinion.
And instead, Fernandes prefers to hear the thoughts of his respected colleagues, such as former teammate Juan Mata.

“It’s just that two days ago a person called Juan Mata, world champion, European champion, winner of the Champions, all in England, said to me ‘you were the best people I’ve met in football, continue like that, being yourself, with that honesty, this ability to work’.
“If someone says that… you know how I am. Boring, because I demand it, but because I am demanding with myself and I also demand it from others.”
