Herrera eyes second-season improvement

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera is not entirely content with his debut season in the Premier League, scoring eight goals and securing a top four spot, eagerly wanting to improve for the next campaign.

Considering it’s his first at Old Trafford, this season has been one to remember for Herrera. Bursting onto the scene in a Manchester United shirt and becoming a fans’ favourite is not something many players witness so quick in their careers.

The Spaniard, who scored in Sunday’s 1-1 draw versus Arsenal, has aided United’s return to the UEFA Champions League and is eager to achieve more next season.

“It has been a tough season, a lot of change at the club and a lot of change in the squad, but I am happy with my development,” Herrera told MUTV.

“Of course I have to keep improving and keep going, but eight goals for a midfielder is a good stat.

“I am an ambitious player so I want to keep improving. There are 25 players on the squad and I have to fight a lot if I want to play.”

Herrera didn’t feature often at the beginning of the season but once he settled fans gave him a warm welcome.

“I came to a massive club and everyone had made me feel like I am at home, so I am very grateful to everyone,” he continued.

“I can only say our supporters are fantastic, they have made me feel unbelievable. When we did not play so good, they were supporting us so I am thankful of that.”
