Ander Herrera has sent a message of thanks to Manchester United fans for the reception he received on arrival in Los Angeles.
Herrera, 24, was part of a fantastic club previously in Athletic Bilbao but when it comes to global appeal, few, if any, can compete with United.
Going on tour for the first time as a United player is an experience most look back on as a real eye opener on just how big United is and there’s no doubt Herrera will get a real taste of that out in USA.
The supporters might not be as fanatical as they were in last year’s tour of Asia but there will still be hordes of fans in USA, something Herrera has already experienced.

Everything this season with United will be bigger than Bilbao for Herrera. From the tour to his new home stadium Old Trafford, it’s a real step-up for the Spaniard.
With a £30m price tag on his head, the club is confident he is more than capable of stepping up to the plate, starting with a potential debut against LA Galaxy on 23 July.
