Livid supporters, having made the long journey, chanted “you’re not fit to wear the shirt” as their side were battered by the superior Seagulls.

When asked about the fans’ brutal assessment by Sky Sports after the game, Fernandes couldn’t disagree.

He said: “I include myself in that.

“What we did today, what I did today, was not enough to be in a Man United shirt and I accept [the criticism].”

Giving his overall assessment of the game, Fernandes added: “The result is what it is. It is not good enough.

“They outplayed us. They always had a solution. Pressed us better and they deserved the result.”

On what he felt went wrong, he continued: “A little bit of everything. Quality. Mentality.

“They deserved to win and we deserve to be in the position we are in now.


“It’s something that we have to look and be embarrassed because that was not good enough from us and we have to do much better.

“I don’t want to talk about the future, we have still one game this season and we have to win.

“I talked with the club about the future many times before I signed my contract because I think the future can be good, but obviously many things need to be fixed, as we have seen this season.”

United travel to Crystal Palace on May 22 for their final game under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

We can only apologise

On his side’s shocking display, the German said: “It was a terrible performance.

“From the first until the last minute it was not enough, we can only apologise for this performance and a humiliating defeat.

“[Monday’s win over Brentford] was a different game, we just gave too much time and space.

“We were never in a position where we could stop them playing through our lines, we told the players be as compact as they could but we couldn’t stop it.

“I don’t think they ignored the gameplan but we weren’t able to stop them.

“We gave them too much space and if you do that against a technically good team like Brighton, you will get punished.”
