Ander Herrera: ‘I have to keep improving’

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera insists he cannot rest on his laurels despite an impressive debut season at Old Trafford.

The Spaniard put in a superb first half performance in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Sunday and capped the showing with the opening goal.

Tyler Blackett’s own goal eventually salvaged a point for the Gunners which all but confirmed that United will finish fourth in the Premier League.

Herrera insisted United were unlucky against Arsenal and that he still has room for improvement.

Speaking after the match, Herrera said: ”I think we played good in the first half. In the second half we knew they were a good team and were going attack. It is a pity but they scored.

“I am happy with my development. I have to keep improving. My first season at a big club and I have played lots games and scored goals. I want to be as good as possible.

“I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. When you arrive at a massive club it is not easy but I am happy and looking forward to next season. I want to be a champion here.”

Herrera has now firmly established himself as one of the first names on the teamsheet after spending the early part of the campaign on the substitute’s bench.

United have a long history of possessing world-class midfield talent and the 25-year-old will undoubtedly earn himself a spot in that category. It is a hugely encouraging time for supporters as the club prepares to make it’s return to the Champions League.
