    Whoever however says criticizes my boss, I never misunderstand him.

    Hi teachers,

    "Whoever however criticizes my boss, I will never misunderstand him."

    Context: I have a bit doubt with my construction of the sentence above because I have never seen a sentence like that specially using those two(whoever however) in a sentence together. Is it okay to say like that? I actually translated it into English. We have sayings like that in our language. But I don't know about English countries. I also know sometimes it is not possible to translate all that we have in our language into English.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to say something like 'Whoever criticises my boss, and however they do it,....' or 'Whoever criticises my boss, in whatever way,....'

    "Whoever in whatever ways criticizes my boss I will never misunderstand him." Is it okay, Rover?
    Or it should be "Whoever criticizes my boss, in what ever ways, I will never misunderstand him."
