Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes has hit out at reports suggesting that the Red Devils squad are unhappy with interim manager, Ralf Rangnick's tactical approach, claiming that such statements are "not respectful".

Reports have recently emerged that there are grumblings within the United squad over the way the team has been asked to play by Rangnick, despite the German losing just one Premier League game during his tenure so far.

Just like when it came to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Fernandes has come to the defence of the current United boss.

"About the formation, nobody has to worry about that more than the coach and his staff. We [the players] have to follow what the manager thinks is the best way for us. In this club I never heard someone complain about the tactics and I hope no-one will do that, it is not respectful," he said in a press conference.

United who recently beat Leeds United 4-2 in an exciting game in the league are currently placed fourth in the PL table, with 46 points from 26 games, four ahead of their closest challengers, West Ham United.

The Red Devils will next be seen in action when they travel to Spain to face Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the round of 16 fixture of the Champions League on Wednesday.
