Ander Herrera discusses his Man United future

Ander Herrera insists that he is planning to stay at Manchester United 'for many years'

Ander Herrera insists that he is planning to stay at Manchester United for “many years” after the Spaniard inspired the Red Devils to victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The midfielder, who joined United from Athletic Bilbao last summer, netted twice as Louis van Gaal’s men beat the Villains to keep their bid for Champions League qualification on track.

And the Spaniard says that he is looking forward to a long and successful career at Old Trafford following his move to the Premier League last summer.

“I’m very happy,” Herrera told United Review. “Even when I was not playing, I was also happy. I am at Manchester United. I feel really lucky to be here. The manager has to decide who is playing or not but we have to respect always the decision he makes. The manager wants the best for the team, the best for us and we have to follow him always.

“When I signed for Manchester United, I was thinking of players like Michael Carrick, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia, Rafael da Silva and, although he is not here now, Darren Fletcher.

“These are people who have been playing for a long time for United. It’s my dream to be here for a long time because I am in the right team, in the right league and in the right country. I feel very happy and I want to stay at the club for many years to come.”

Herrera has scored five goals and made four assists in 19 Premier League games for the Red Devils so far this season.

Saturday’s win over Villa left United third in the Premier League table and eight points behind leaders Chelsea heading into the final seven games of the season.

United have won 18 of their 31 top-flight games so far this season, and eight of their last 10 Premier League outings.
