Bruno Fernandes reveals how Ole Solskjaer convinced him that he is was highly needed at Manchester United which made him join them.
Bruno Fernandes made Manchester United fans fall in love with him in just handful number of matches. The Portuguese midfielder has been sensational ever since he made a debut in the Premier League.
He has already been able to bag 3 goals and 4 assists in just 9 appearances across all competitions. Adding further, his playing style has added more aesthetics to Manchester United’s gameplay.
Fernandes even won the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for February after making an instant impact at Manchester United with his performances.
However, before stepping into the Old Trafford, Manchester United had to fight a long battle of negotiations to land the 25-year-old in England in January.
Fernandes after four months of joining the club has revealed how Ole Solskjaer played a pivotal role in bringing him to Manchester United, as the former tells that Solskjaer made him believe that Manchester United is the only club for him.
“Since the beginning, I wanted to join Manchester United,’ he told the MUTV. ‘For me, the most important was obviously the confidence of the coach.”
“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 of 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.”
Presently, the Premier League is at a halt due to the spread of the Coronavirus, due to which all the players have been instructed to be in self-isolation.
