Bruno Fernandes has responded to the criticism Manchester United received over their dealings in the transfer window.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looked to strengthen his side over the summer as the club agreed deals for five new players to bolster his first-team squad.
Donny van de Beek was joined by Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri on transfer deadline day, while a deal was also struck for Amad Diallo to join next year.
Despite signing five new players United missed out on priority target Jadon Sancho and Solskjaer failed to sign a new centre-back to partner club captain Harry Maguire.
Fernandes believes the criticism of United’s market activity has been excessive.

“Everyone is talking about we need a defender, we need a midfielder, we need a striker, we need a winger,” Fernandes told MUTV. “It is easier talking from outside saying we need everything and don’t be on the pitch, you now?
“I think we need to look for each other, help each other and be positive as a team. We can defend ourselves here on the pitch not on social media. For me it was important for me in that moment to talk after national team, I have no problems talking openly about anything. For me the most important thing was the result today on the pitch.”
