Ander Herrera sends message to Man United fans ahead of Celta Vigo showdown
Ander Herrera underlines the importance of Manchester United qualifying for next season's Champions League
Ander Herrera has stressed the importance of Manchester United qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The Red Devils look likely to miss out on a top-four finish in the Premier League this term after they were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at The Emirates last weekend.
However, Manchester United can still book their place in next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League in Jose Mourinho’s first campaign at the club.
And Herrera believes that it is vital for a club of Manchester United’s stature to be playing in the Champions League next season.
Speaking to MUTV, Herrera said: “The most important thing is to be in the Champions League next season.
“I have no doubt for this club it is very important to be in the Champions League.
“We have two titles – the Community Shield and League Cup – and we can have a very good season if we fight for the Europa League.”
Manchester United are preparing to host Celta Vigo at Old Trafford on Thursday night as they look to beat the Spanish side and book their place in the Europa League final.
The Red Devils were 1-0 winners over the La Liga side in the first leg in Spain last week thanks to Marcus Rashford’s free-kick.
