Bruno Fernandes made the switch from Primeira Liga side Sporting Lisbon to Old Trafford in January.
The Portuguese has scored three goals and registered four assists in just nine appearances for United.
Manchester United's January signing Bruno Fernandes says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a key factor in his decision to move to Old Trafford.
The Portuguese midfield ace secured a £68million move from Sporting Lisbon to United in the January transfer window and put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half-year deal.
Fernandes has absolutely hit the ground running in England and won the Premier League's Player of the Month award for February.
However, the 25-year-old has revealed his motivation for signing for the Red Devils while speaking to MUTV.
'Since the beginning, I wanted to join Manchester United,' the midfield maestro, who has made an instant impact at United, scoring three goals and registering four assists in just nine appearances for the 20-time champions, said.
'For me, the most important was obviously the confidence of the coach. I need to know I am backed by 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.'
