Ander Herrera: This is what Jose Mourinho has brought to Man United

Ander Herrera says Manchester United are beginning to rediscover their identity under Jose Mourinho

Ander Herrera believes that Manchester United are beginning to regain their identity under new boss Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have been in impressive form in recent weeks following Mourinho’s arrival as the club’s new manager back in May.

Manchester United have won their last six games in a row in the Premier League as they look to climb the top flight table in the second half of the season.

Mourinho’s men had initially struggled to find consistent form under their new manager but now look like they are clicking into gear in the top flight.

And Spanish midfielder Herrera believes that the Red Devils are beginning to show signs of the identity that Mourinho is trying to install at Old Trafford.

Speaking to MUTV, Herrera said: “When you watch Manchester United now you realise quickly who is the big team and that means we are finding our identity, the DNA of this club and its history.

“The most important thing in my opinion is we are not conceding too many chances and we are behaving like a big team.

“Of course we have to improve and be more clinical because we are creating a lot more chances than we are scoring but we can be happy and we can even more optimistic for the next few months and the next year because I think we are doing the right things and working in the right way.

“We all know [which direction the manager wants the team to go in]

“Since I have been at this club I have won two trophies, the FA Cup and Community Shield, but we don’t want to stop. Now we are in four competitions and we have the obligation to fight for everything.”
