Ander Herrera has spoken about his happiness at getting to play for Manchester United.
“I always had a lot of respect for United,” he said. “I knew that it was one of the best clubs in the world and one of the most recognised and most followed – I saw the statistics for that,” he recalls. “It’s a dream for me to be here but I have to work very hard if I want to be an important player at this great club. I have really enjoyed things and I am very happy, and I now understand how big the club is. In America on tour there were a lot of people supporting us and now in Manchester, when we play at Old Trafford and you see fans around the city, I understand even more.”
Herrera is currently suffering from a broken rib but should be available to return after the international break.
