Ander Herrera: Why I feel so at home at Man United
Ander Herrera is loving life at Manchester United...
Ander Herrera has revealed that he feels completely at home at Manchester United following his transfer to Old Trafford in 2014.
The Spanish midfielder has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils’ first team since arriving at the club from Athletic Bilbao as one of Louis van Gaal’s first signings.
Herrera has scored two goals and made one assist in six Premier League appearances for the Red Devils so far this season and played the full 90 minutes in last weekend’s goalless draw against Manchester City.
And the 26-year-old says that is now feeling completely settled in England as he looks to help Van Gaal’s men mount a serious title challenge this season.
Herrera told United Review: “I feel at home at Manchester United.
“I am enjoying the best league in the world. I think it has the best organisation, the best stadiums, the best atmosphere.
“I remember playing against Cambridge in the FA Cup and we waited 25 minutes because the Cambridge fans were coming on a bus and they were delayed. I was thinking that’s really, really good because they are thinking about the fans and football is about fans.
“I always say the same – if the footballing world doesn’t think of the fans, it’s going to lose the passion and the love. So I was impressed but I was very happy because the fans come first here.”
United are currently fourth in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games.
Herrera will be hoping to feature when the Red Devils travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
