Gabriel Agbonlahor has savagely criticised Bruno Fernandes for his poor work rate as Manchester United suffered a second consecutive Premier League defeat in a 4-0 loss to Brentford on Saturday.
Appearing on talkSPORT following United's defeat, Agbonlahor was critical of the 27-year-old's qualities as a good teammate:
'For me, Fernandes, since he's been in the Premier League, yes he's had great stats, goalscoring and assists but he looks like the worst teammate.
'Every time a player gives it away, every time he gives it away, he throws his arms up at his teammates, he throws his arms up at the bench.'
Agbonlahor compared Fernandes to former United star Paul Pogba, who was regularly criticised during his time at Old Trafford for failing to give his all in the United shirt:
'I've played with players like him, you'd be fuming at him. He'll press now and then. If that was Paul Pogba they would be slaughtering Pogba in the media.'
The former Aston Villa forward further questioned why Fernandes does not receive the same level of condemnation as some of his teammates in Erik ten Hag's sqaud:
'Fernandes gets away with murder. Did you see Fernandes do anything? It's easy to say Maguire, Ronaldo, Rashford, Sancho.
'Fernandes, for me, I can't remember the last time he had a decent game. He's always the one that's throwing his arms up in the air. Even when he gives it away.
'He could pass it to you but pass it out of play and he'd blame you. That's the sort of player Fernandes is. The worst possible teammate.' He added.
After signing for the club in 2020 January transfer window, Fernandes enjoyed a successful debut season scoring eight times in the Premier League in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first full season at the club.
The former Sporting Lisbon star would build on his initial success with an excellent 20/21 Premier League campaign, contributing 28 goals across 58 games as United finished second in the Premier League.
Despite starting last season emphatically with a hat-trick against rivals Leeds in United's Premier League opener, Fernandes struggled to replicate his earlier performances throughout the season, scoring just once in the final ten league games of the campaign as the club slumped to a sixth-placed finish under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
