Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants players to take the lead in the dressing room.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Bruno Fernandes for the leadership he shows inside the dressing room at Old Trafford. Solskjaer wants his players to throwback to the years of Sir Alex Ferguson where players hold each other to account behind the scenes.

Fernandes has been in sensational form for the Red Devils once again this season, netting eight goals and providing five assists for his team-mates.

He has shown great leadership on several occasions since joining United from Sporting Lisbon last January including letting Marcus Rashford take a penalty in the Champions League against Istanbul Basaksehir earlier this week.

Solskjaer does not mind heated exchanges between his players with Fernandes more than happy to speak his mind.

The Portuguese has been handed the captain's armband when Harry Maguire has been absent this season.

"In the heat of the moment people are allowed to air their frustration and be angry because it’s just for the benefit of the team," he said.

"But then it’s over and done with. If it lingers on, that’s a different scenario.

"I’ve been in a team and I like a team that has that inner justice where it’s not just the managers and the coaches who shout.

"I want players to take responsibility and put other players in their places at times when it’s necessary.

"They’re out there fighting for one cause and that’s for the team to win. Once in a while you just have to take a rollicking when you deserve one.

"Bruno isn’t just giving out rollickings, he’s also instructing players. We can all learn from his mentality and mindset. If it’s 4-0, he wants 5-0. He always wants the team to improve."

Solskjaer insists he is happy with his side's consistency, pointing to the fact Liverpool are the only team that have picked up more points than them since the arrival of Fernandes.

"Teams that win the league put good runs together," he said. "If you look at the last 40 games, we win two, draw one, win two, lose one.

"Look at the stats since Bruno came in after the Burnley game (in January). Only Liverpool have taken more points, so we are getting there.

"We did not start the league on a par with everyone else because of Europe and a pre-season we didn’t have. Now we are showing what we’re capable of."

The United boss has a year left on his contract at the end of the season and is keen to stay on in the job.

He added: "We live in a results business and all I want is for Man United to improve as a team and as a club."

United return to action later today when they take on Southampton (2pm).

Solskjaer will hope Fernandes can once again inspire his side to victory and move them closer to the top of the table after an inconsistent start to the campaign.
