Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager in December, things have turned out well for the Red Devils, who have lost only one of their last 13 matches played in all competitions.
Under the guidance of the Norwegian, several players have improved a lot and this includes the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, as the statistics clearly indicate the same, while there are other players doing well too.
One of them in Ander Herrera, who according to today’s edition of Spanish newspaper AS is the ‘invisible footballer’.
He was the star player for Manchester United in their 2-0 win over Chelsea in the FA Cup and journalist Guillem Balague heaps praise on the former Athletic Bilbao man. He claims Herrera is no longer ‘just a predatory dog’ or simply running around aimlessly.
The Spaniard has the full confidence of Solskjaer, and his ability to make the right pass without complicating things has given Paul Pogba more freedom. In addition to this, Herrera has the emotional intelligence to lead by example with his game and words.
Balague is surprised that Luis Enrique has not included the midfielder in the Spain squad, but claims it won’t take long for him to receive a national team call up.
Herrera’s current deal at Old Trafford runs down in the summer and the report claims talks are ongoing to extend the contract.
