Ander Herrera has been speaking about his new Manchester United teammates.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has praised the club’s record signing Angel Di Maria, after the Argentine international inspired his side to a 4-0 victory against Queens Park Rangers on Sunday.

In an interview with MUTV, the Spanish star said, “Angel is one of the best players in the world. Manchester United always has to have top players and he is one of the best.

“We have Radamel Falcao as well, with Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw. I think we have a new team but we are improving; we are working hard and we are looking forward to this season.”

Herrera shone against QPR, scoring one, setting up another and looking every inch the creative midfielder United fans have been crying out for.

While Di Maria may have been most fans’ man-of-the-match, the former Athletic Bilbao player was not too far behind, and that can only bode well for the matches to come.

Herrera also spoke specifically about Blind and Rojo, saying, “Marcos is very, very aggressive and this is important for the team. Blind never loses the ball and we are happy, but of course we have to improve still.”

That they do, and there will be far tougher matches to come, but by the looks of it they are in the process of turning their home ground back into a fortress, and if they can replicate their away form from last season, then who knows where they could end up come May…
