Ander Herrera has endeared himself to Manchester United fans within a short space of time thanks both to his performances on the field and the way he acts off it.
Despite the disappointment of not having much game time, Herrera has never become visibly frustrated and instead bided his time waiting for an opportunity which he has taken with aplomb in the last three games with three goals.
Now, the Spaniard has recollected when he signed for Man United and how he had to cut short his holiday in order to complete the move.
“I was traveling with my friends on holiday and I will never forget this moment. Even though I lost my holiday,” he said.
Herrera is such a genuine character which is a rarity in football and it’s probably one of the reasons he has quickly become such a loved character in Louis van Gaal‘s squad. Fans can relate to Herrera and his honesty makes it very easy to like him.
There’s not much you can say against Herrera and if he can keep up his recent excellent performances, there won’t be much van Gaal can do other than put him in his starting XI every week.
