Ex-Man Utd stars Brown, Fletcher and O'Shea would be branded 'f***ing s***' by modern fans, claims Rafael

RAFAEL claims modern fans would brand fellow ex-Manchester United stars Darren Fletcher, West Brown and John O'Shea "f***ing s***" –  as he pleaded for more patience over boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Brazil right-back Rafael, 30, believes harsh, instant verdicts from today's social media generation damage current Old Trafford players like Fred.

And the Istanbul Basaksehir star claims there is far too much "negativity" as he urged supporters to "relax and trust" Solskjaer and his squad.

That might sound a tad rich coming from a player who slated Louis van Gaal as being "one of the worst people" and having a "s***" reign as United manager.

But Rafael told The Athletic: 'If you see some players who played very well for Manchester United, these days if they played in this team … I speak about Wesley Brown, John O’Shea, Darren Fletcher..

"I speak about many of us, players who are good Manchester United players historically. But these days, everyone would have said, 'F***ing s**t, why is this guy playing for United?'

"F***ing hell, guys, these players are there for a reason. Give them some trust and confidence.

"I am not saying everything is right at United. Many things went wrong and they did wrong but not everything is s**t.

‘You see Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Even Fred. Fred is not a flop. He is a good player and sometimes he is not even playing. 

"You say you want more midfielders? F****ing hell, Fred is not even playing sometimes. 

"You say he is a bad player? He is not a bad player. But these days, Twitter. People are there, like a computer, saying, 'Delete the club; or 'S**t coach, s**t player'."
