A genuine fan-favourite at Old Trafford, and yet the Spaniard wasn’t allowed to bid adieu to the home supporters during the final game of the season, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to exclude him from the matchday squad.
In spite of that decision, Herrera had nothing but positive words for the Norwegian tactician. In fact, the tenacious midfielder still believes Ole is the right man for the club, regardless of the poor results his team has displayed of late.
Speaking about the super-sub, the 29-year-old stated (via M.E.N.): “I really believe in Ole. I really believe in Michael (Carrick), Kieran (McKenna), Mick Phelan and Demps (Mark Dempsey), but I think there is a tough job ahead.
“That is my opinion as a fan and as someone who knows the club at the moment. These fans are the best, they are amazing, but they need time.
“He (Solskjaer) is one of the best people I have ever met in football. Everyone loves him in the dressing room. Everyone wants to fight for him. When you have the players behind you and wanting to fight for you, part of the job is done.
“I believe in karma and if you are a good person, if you are honest and sincere with the players and the fans, sooner or later it will work. I think Ole is the right person because he has qualities and knowledge but also he is a great man and a great person.”
Ander also spoke about the overall rebuilding process that is currently ongoing at Manchester United, as he added: “The club will need time, confidence and support. I am sure they will give it but the only thing I ask for them is time because this is not easy.
“There are examples. Liverpool are probably going to win the Champions League but I am leaving this club and they (United) haven’t won one title in five years I have been here. They have done incredible work but the fans have given them time. That’s what this club needs at the moment.”
