Video: Ander Herrera’s assist for Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s goal against Ajax

by Sam Peoples

Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s goal against Ajax put Manchester United in total control in the Europa League final but he wouldn’t have been in the box had it not been for Ander Herrera.

The Spanish midfielder told Mkhitaryan to get in the penalty area for the corner and put himself on defensive duty covering the counter-attack. What a brilliant decision that proved to be from the Basque magician.

All season long there have been moments from Herrera where I see captain potential. This is another one of those. What a guy.
