Ander Herrera is a quality player. Who would have thought it?
Against Liverpool last weekend, the Spaniard ran the show along with Michael Carrick. Showcasing an excellent range of passing, Herrera was instrumental in the victory and provided the assist for Juan Mata’s opening goal.
Louis van Gaal is a highly demanding manager who has shown he cares little for price tags or reputation when it comes to his team selection.
Herrera isn’t the only one who has had to warm the bench this term with Radamel Falcao, Angel di Maria and Juan Mata all spending time on the sidelines. Instead of moaning about the situation, Herrera has kept his head down, worked hard and rightly deserves his place in the starting XI.
Now, he has made himself indispensable and a crucial part of United’s midfield trio alongside Carrick and Mata which has proved so effective against Tottenham and Liverpool.
