Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that he is pleased with the team’s midfield, and the competition involved.
United's midfield which comprises of the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and Michael Carrick have provided great midfield performances this season compared to previous seasons for United.
United defeated Everton three goals to nothing at the Goodison Park, a game in which Herrera scored with a header and also provided an assist for Rooney as United bounced back from their disappointing three nil defeat to Arsenal before the international break.
“You take advantage of that,”the 26-year-old said of the competition in the middle of the park, reports Manutd.com.“When you play with the best players you take advantage of that like we did. This is good for me, good for the club. I always think the same way. When the club signs top players you are going to take advantage of that and that is what I’m doing.
“You have [Schweinsteiger] and also Michael Carrick and they are very experienced guys. I think Morgan and me can learn a lot from them. I think we were very comfy and when Michael came in also the same. We are similar players. We understand football the same way.”
Herrera revealed that he has been training hard and is ready to help the team when called upon.
“I have trained really hard in these two weeks,”he continued. “I wanted to play as soon as possible and the manager gave me the chance. I enjoyed the chance he gave to me and I want to keep helping the team. I am a team player and when I play I will do my best.
“I scored and got an assist, so I can enjoy. I am very happy. I want to be a top player and I have to play like this always. You want to always be in the team but this is Manchester United. You have to play really good if you want to be in the team every day, so that’s what I want to do.
“I think people are happy with me and they value me because I always try to give everything for the team. I am really proud because I am at Manchester United and I will try to do my best to establish myself in the first team.”
United face CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League in mid-week, with United hoping to get three points.
