Herrera: Solskjaer has made every Manchester United player feel ‘important’

Ander Herrera has praised interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for making every Manchester United player feel important since he took over as caretake boss. 

The Norwegian’s methods have so far worked, with Manchester United losing just one of his 13 games in charge and are back in contention for a Top Four spot in the Premier League.

In a joint interview with midfield partner Nemanja Matic, the Spaniard hailed Solskjaer for bringing back United characteristics to the clubs play.

“What the manager has brought to the team is the message that we are all important,” Herrera told Inside United.

“We are Manchester United players and we are always ready to fight, always ready to ask for the ball.”

Herrera pointed to the strength the team has shown in midfield of late, arguing the case that the Red Devils are playing more attractive football now.

“At the moment, it is true that us two plus Paul are playing more, but I’m sure Nemanja would agree with me that we have a lot of quality in the team – Fred can play, Scott [McTominay] has a lot of potential and energy, Andreas Pereira has a lot of qualities. I think we can all help. At the moment we are enjoying more time but the season is long and we will need everyone.

“The mood at the moment, the atmosphere, it’s fantastic and I think the fans feel like we are doing what they want us to do,” the 29-year-old added.

“We are going now in the way that they want us to go – of course, winning, but also in the style of football, the attacking football, always trying to create chances, always trying to be the protagonist team on the pitch.

“That’s what our fans want so the only thing we can say – and I think Nemanja is the same – is thank you to you all. It is going to be a very tough battle for the top four, and also for the Champions League, so we really need them.”
