He’s been excellent at getting the best out of his players and hasn’t been afraid of keeping them out of the action until they provide the performances he’s looking for, as Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have learned.
Speaking about Mourinho, Herrera insists the players believe in what he’s doing at Old Trafford.
“In the FA Cup, he rested some important players against Blackburn and they, Pogba and Ibrahimovic, were crucial at the end of the game. It will not be key that Southampton have 15 days off because in football sometimes it is good to keep playing and winning and getting that rhythm.”
The side have been in brilliant form, but Mourinho has been furious with the fixture congestion at Man United, as United will have played three games since Southampton’s last match.
He’s been excellent at rotating the players and there’s no doubt he’ll have a plan in mind, because behind the players, are the fans who all believe in what he’s building.
