Ander Herrera has been one of Manchester United’s top performers this campaign, with the smiling Spaniard really making his mark on the midfield. The Red Devils have looked much better with him in the side, and going forward, he has to be one of the first names on the team sheet.
The 27-year-old has been speaking to the media about Manchester United’s goals for this season, and admitted that he’d love to win titles and trophies this campaign.
He’s hungry and has huge desire to succeed here, which certainly mirrors his style of play when he’s on the field. He has admitted that it will be very tough to secure a top-four finish – but there is still plenty to play for.
“But we’re still alive in three competitions and in the Premier League we have to finish in the top four,” Herrera is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“We will not be 100 percent happy if we are fourth because we want to finish as high as possible but, minimum, we have to be in the top four and fight for the rest of the titles.”
“That’s what this club is about – titles and trophies.”
“I cannot lie. For our fans, it would be special to finish above them (Liverpool and City), but I think it will be very tough.”
“We all want to be in the top four and there’s still a lot play for, but I think we are in a good moment. They can see ‘Man United is chasing us.”
Right now, we’re a huge fourteen points off the pace and Chelsea just don’t look like they’ll be caught this season. However, we’re just one and two points away from Liverpool and Arsenal respectively – and that goal is certainly an achievable one.
On top of that, we’re in the EFL Cup final where we’ll take on Southampton. Let’s not forget that the FA Cup has handed us a favourable draw away at Blackburn, and the Europa League gets going again shortly.
Personally, I’d be happy with a top four finish and an EFL Cup to our name. That’d have to be considered a successful season, but then again, why not go all out in every tournament – we certainly have a big enough squad.
