He scored eight goals and added seven assists as United finished strongly to take third place in the Premier League last season.

The Red Devils have not won the title since 2013 something that Fernandes said was too long.

Speaking on the UTD podcast, he said: “For me, it doesn’t matter about the other teams, people may say they are better than us, they have a better first XI than us, the guys who come from the bench are better, people can say what they think, I don’t care.

“For me, I came to Manchester to win trophies. You are playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world. This club has made history in the past, an amazing history.

“For a club like Manchester United, it’s a long time since we won the Premier League. It’s too long, I think.

“So you have to have in your mind – all the players, all the staff – we are here to win. And I think we have that mentality.”

The 26-year-old also said he was learning a lot from Man United coach Michael Carrick and the way he played the game.

“I was talking with Fred and I was going to say to him, ‘Hey, watch him playing and do the same’, but I thought it was unfair and so I didn’t say it,” Fernandes joked.

He added: “I’m learning a lot from him (Carrick) and he’s one of the people I like to listen to, because he was a big player, he won a lot of trophies for the club and for me you have to learn from these players.

“(Joao) Moutinho and Carrick, they are the sort of players from whom you can learn how to be smart in the game, how to be clever.

“Maybe they’re not the sort of players that kids will watch and say, ‘I want to be like Michael Carrick’, but when you have one in the team, you know that guy will never miss a pass, you know he will do the smart pass, most of the times will make the right decision, and you need these kinds of players.”
