Manchester United signing Bruno Fernandes has revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a very crucial factor in his £68million transfer, MySportDab reports.
The Portuguese midfielder joined from Sporting Lisbon to Old Trafford in January on a five-year contract and he has started very well.
MySportDab can recall Fernandes won the Premier League’s Player of the Month Award in February after showing his class at United.
The 25-year-old has now explained why he wanted to join United and how Solskjaer played a crucial role.
‘From the start I wanted to join Manchester United,’ Bruno told the MUTV.
‘For me, one key factor was obviously the confidence of the coach. I need to know that the coach wants me, because when you change clubs, not coach wants you.
‘Not like I only wanted to join because the coach wanted me to play, no, not that, but I want to have that confidence from the coach.
“You join, you are a big choice for me and you come. I need you, I want you”.
“It’s not like you join and but I will play?” ‘No, this is not the point. For me, the point is the confidence the Coach has in me.’
Fernandes has scored three goals and provided four assists in just nine matches for Manchester United.
