Manchester United fullback Fabio da Silva says he's a better player for last season's loan with QPR.

Despite the chaos at Loftus Road during a campaign that ended in relegation, he feels it has made him more determined.

"I learned a lot last season," he said. "Before it was very new when I played. Of course, it is a dream to play at Old Trafford. But I am calm about the situation.

"I definitely want to impress the new manager but I am also confident in myself that I can play for Manchester United.

"I accept they are one of the biggest clubs in the world and have such fantastic players here.

"If it doesn't work out here maybe I have to go to another club.

"But I am still hopeful of playing here. I will try to the end to do that."
