“I think he [Herrera] is an integral part of what Solskjaer has tried to do since he’s been in there. He’s the main man in there and an unsung hero. You look at the job Fernandinho does for Man City and Herrera does that as well. He has turned into a real leader.
“I think he has gone under the radar in the last 11 or 12 games since Ole’s been in there because the big hitters have been getting all the credit, but he’s a real leader for Ole in there.
Ander Herrera for Man United in all competitions this season:

An instrumental player for United. 🔴⚫ [SQUAWKA]— Man Utd Empire (@Empire_Mu) February 20, 2019
“I’m slightly surprised United have waited this long to offer him a new contract. They’ve sorted other ones out over the long term and he’s one I think they should have done a little bit sooner.”
