Bryan Robson feels Manchester United must keep Ander Herrera
Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson feels that midfielder Ander Herrera needs to be kept by his former club beyond the summer.
The 29-year-old has entered the final six months of his contract, meaning he is open to negotiate with foreign clubs, and has to still strike a new deal at Old Trafford.
The report says that the Spaniard is committed to future at the club, and Robson feels they should keep hold of the midfielder.
Talking to Manchester Evening News, the legend said: “I’d definitely keep hold of Herrera.
“I don’t think it’s any coincidence that since Ander got back in the team, everybody has been talking about [Anthony] Martial and Marcus Rashford and [Paul] Pogba, but I think Herrera has played really well since he came into the team.
“Because he’s playing week in, week out, he’s a lot sharper than when he was coming into the team for maybe one game and then he was on the bench. I think playing regularly has brought the best out of Ander.”
“He knows the position of a central midfield player. He protects the back four and he doesn’t give the ball away very often.
“He’s a decent passer of the ball but he allows people like Pogba and the attacking midfield players to get on with the game.
“The good thing about Ander as well is that he can actually score you a goal if he’s in the team all the time.”
Manchester United travel to Leicester City for their next league game tomorrow afternoon as they seek to take one step closer to a top-four finish.
