Fernandes reveals why he joined Manchester United

Bruno Fernandes has become the darling of many at Old Trafford since making his switch from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United. 

Fernandes signed for United in January for a reported fee of £68m and has revealed coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was behind his move to the Red Devils. The midfielder says Solskjaer convinced him to move to Old Trafford because of showing confidence in him. 

"For me, the most important was obviously the confidence of the coach," he said when asked why he decided to join United by a fan during a Q&A on the club's official website. 

"I need to know I am backed from the coach, because sometimes when you change club, not every time the coach wants you."

"Not like I need to come because the coach wants me to play, no, not like this, but I want to feel the confidence from the coach. You come, you are a choice for me and you come. I need you, I want you, it's not like you come and I ask but I will play? No, this for me is not the point. For me, the point is the confidence he has in me. If he has confidence in me, then the rest is working. I need to work to conquer my place, to play, to keep going with games and games and games."
