Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira says he was bitterly disappointed after manager Louis van Gaal failed to use him more in the second part of the season.
The 20-year-old wanted to leave on loan during the January transfer window but was persuaded by the Dutchman to stay.
Despite this, he failed to enjoy regular first-team football at the club but is now determined to train hard and fight for a regular place.
"I wanted to be loaned out in January in order to play more and to keep developing myself, but van Gaal told me that he did not want me to be loaned out," the youngster told Goal.
"He told me to stay in Manchester because he would use me and that I would play.
"I told him that was fine, and that if I could stay and play then I would. He did not let me leave. I took the decision and now I'm training, doing my job and waiting for him to fulfil his word.
"Of course I expected to play more. I think that I deserved the chance. I did well in the games that I had the opportunity to play, but football can be like that.
"My manager has not given me this opportunity yet and I will keep working hard, waiting for the chances. If they've not come this year, then maybe the next, but I'll be ready. I'm very calm because everyone sees that I'm playing well and that I deserve my shot."
