Ander Herrera believes Manchester United will have “no excuses” if they fail to be successful this season.
Louis van Gaal has overseen a major haul in personnel this summer having been handed the funds to land his targets.
However, Man United are yet to really get going in the Premier League so far this term and they suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Swansea City last time out.
Herrera insisted United should be aiming high this season and that they will be “fighting for everything”.
“Last season was the first with the new staff and a lot of new players like me but, now, we have no excuses. We have to fight for everything,” Herrera said.
“We are going to try to win every game. When I see the millions of supporters we have, I just think we cannot be fourth in the league, we have to be higher. It’s a very exciting season and we will be fighting for everything.”
Herrera is absolutely right in saying that there are no excuses for van Gaal and United this term. The experienced manager has been backed in the transfer market and he now has his own set of players at his disposal. Although they will need time to really bed in, van Gaal needs to start producing performances as well as results.
