Manchester United midfielder wasn’t surprised by Van Gaal sacking

Manchester United Football Club decided to cut short Louis van Gaal’s tenure as boss, due to some poor performances and results – particularly in the Premier League. Now, Jose Mourinho is the man in charge, and Ander Herrera is clearly excited by the prospect.

“This is a unique opportunity that will push me the maximum.” The United midfielder started.

Herrera then went on to praise his former manager Louis van Gaal, before adding that nothing surprises him in the modern day footballing world.

“Van Gaal is an honest guy and has always put Manchester United above all else.” The Spaniard began.

“In football today, nothing surprises you,” Ander Herrera told Marca.

At the end of the day, Louis van Gaal simply had to go when he couldn’t deliver Champions League football, despite winning the FA Cup.

Herrera has always been that genuine player who’ll back his manager right until the very end, and that’s the case once again here.

As you’d imagine, Ander Herrera is also excited about the idea of working with Jose Mourinho. The world-class Portuguese coach will hopefully have plans for our smiling Spaniard, who found his chances extremely limited under Van Gaal.

You feel that this upcoming season is certainly make or break for Ander Herrera, and if he struggles this term, then he could well be on his way out of Old Trafford for good.
