Ander Herrera sends message to Man United fans about Paul Pogba
The Manchester United midfielder lifts the lid on his midfield partnership with Paul Pogba
Ander Herrera is confident that his exciting partnership with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba can improve next season.
The France international moved to Manchester United in an £89m move to Old Trafford from Serie A giants Juventus in the 2016 summer transfer window.
Pogba made a slow start to life back at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho following his world-record switch under Jose Mourinho.
The 24-year-old came into his own as the season progressed and finished the 2016-17 campaign with four goals and three assists.
Herrera established himself as a key member of Mourinho’s team thanks to his tenacious performances in the Manchester United midfield.
And the Spain international lifted the lid on the dynamics of his partnership with Pogba at Old Trafford.
“It is easy to play with him, he is a top player,” Herrera told Sport 360.
“He likes to attack more than me so when we both play together I have to protect the defence more.
“I try to keep my position more because you know Paul has the ability to score; the ability to head, to shoot, to dribble – he has everything.
“I think we have a good partnership, hopefully we can play together for a long time and win trophies for the club.”
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term.
The Red Devils won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in their first campaign under Mourinho.
Manchester United signed four players in the 2016 summer transfer window but are yet to confirm any additions this year.
