Fernandes himself was recently forced to deny speculation of a bust-up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, after reports claimed he was unhappy with the direction the club was going in.
The Norwegian boss was full of praise for the Portuguese ace after the Istanbul thrashing, as he joked he is playing as more of a striker than a midfielder at the moment, saying: “Midfielder? He plays up front!
“He’s had a fantastic impact, and you just see how it breeds confidence and it gives other players confidence around him.
“We know, at any moment, he can create a chance for anyone, so it’s for the rest of them to make movements, runs in behind, clever movements, because he’ll find you.”
