“I packed my suitcase really quickly, and then Lopetegui called me. I took a taxi to come to the Spain training centre as soon as possible as I didn’t want him to turn to another player who could come sooner than me.”
I read somewhere this morning a nice article about him and his progress under Mourinho. It's very nice to aknowledge that he managed to solidify his position in the first team and may it continue for a long long time. We've looked a way more attacking side with him in midfield and despite my conviction that he's a box to box type of midfielder he's done really well in a holding role. Schneiderlin's situation is not looking good...
He's really blossomed under Mourinho, he was rarely making Van Gaal's XI, but now he's one of the first picked for the match. Read an interview with him this morning talking about he has adapted to a deeper role, despite preferring being a 10, and only then I remembered that he's not really the defensive midfielder we're currently using him as
Very happy for him as he's also easily one of the most likeable guys on the team
big step forward from him this season. Always liked him but he is cetrainly the most improved player under Mourinho. Also he is starting to communicate in the middle of the pitch like a leader, he takes responsibilty which is important for our retun to the top. Long may it continue!
While his stock continues to rise, Herrera knows he has to be at his best in order to retain his place at a big club like United where top players are brought in during each transfer window.
"Yes, but you never know because if I want to keep playing for United you have to play very well because United is the biggest club in England," he added.
"The club has the capacity to bring any players here so you have to always be at your highest level if you want to keep playing for this club. It's not easy but I hope I can and I will fight for it." [ESPN]
