Manchestero midfielder Bruno Fernandes says a coach at his former club Sampdoria has inspired his unique technique for penalties.

The Portuguese international has been on the ground at United since his January move from Sporting Lisbon, and quickly became one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's most important players.

Two of Fernandes & # 39; three goals for United have come from the penalty spot, including his first goal for the club in & # 39; a 3-0 win against Watford in February.

The 26-year-old has a similar style to Chelsea midfielder Jorginho, where he does a ship before coolly passing the ball to a disgruntled goalkeeper, and the midfielder pitches the idea to his ex-coach in Italy.

& # 39; My inspiration was a coach, like a third coach in Sampdoria, to & # 39; I started shooting in Udinese penalties and I already shot in the national team, including Under-21s, & # 39; said Fernandes in a live live session on Instagram with former Macedonia international Mario Gjurovski.

& # 39; At that time, I had another way to shoot, and a technical coach that he played from Sampdoria and he had a major injury, so the club gave him a job to help him and others helping to take shots at the end of & # 39; e training.

"We cut pens after training, (I) was at (Fabio) Quagliarella, he started talking to me and said why don't you change your idea? It will be difficult for the keeper.

"I try that, Quagliarella took penalties and when I came to Portugal, it was Bas Dost and I finished second.

'So I started taking them, but it was him, nobody knows it was no inspiration, just advice and I started doing it.

'Sometimes I change, I never shoot in the same way, because if I go three or four penalties in a row, I'll change.

& # 39; Keepers have videos and you can study, so I will have to change, in order for them to know. & # 39;
