Ander Herrera has opened up about the main message conveyed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to his Manchester United players after he was appointed as Red Devils boss.

The Red Devils have been in superb form since the Norwegian was appointed as Jose Mourinho’s successor at Old Trafford last month.

Manchester United have sealed dominant wins over Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Cardiff, with the Red Devils squad seemingly having been given a new lease of life since Mourinho’s departure.

Herrera and his team-mates were particularly impressive as they sealed a dominant 4-1 win over Bournemouth at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Spanish midfielder will be hoping to impress his new manager in the coming weeks as he looks to try and hold down a regular spot in the starting line-up.

And Herrera has now lifted the lid on what Solskjaer has changed since his appointment at Old Trafford.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Herrera said: “Our manager told us on the first day, the best way to win a game when you are in the lead is to keep attacking and this what the club has always been about.

“The best way to defend is to keep the ball and keep attacking. When you win and score lots of goals you want to play as soon as possible and I hope we perform on Wednesday against Newcastle as we have today [against Bournemouth].

“We are still sixth but we should not be because of the quality we have.”

Manchester United will look to make it four wins in a row under their new boss when they travel to Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils finished in second place under Mourinho last term but without a trophy.
