Manchester United youngster with high praise for £28.85m star

Ander Herrera

Will Keane has been waxing lyrical about Ander Herrera.

Manchester United youngster Will Keane has been speaking to the official club website this week for United Uncovered, undertaking in their questions on the club's training sessions.

And he has been adding to the praise around one of the club's summer signings. But not Angel Di Maria - Ander Herrera.

The Spanish international arrived at the club in the summer, 12 months after he first appeared on their radar.

United snapped him up from Athletic Bilbao for £28.85 million this summer, and the young striker has certainly been impressed with what he has seen in training.

He told United Uncovered:

"I've always been very impressed by Ander Herrera whenever I've trained with him since he came in. I've played in his team in games quite a bit and he gets stuck in but, for me, as a striker, he assists me a lot. He is always feeding me good passes. He's very good in training and is technically very good. I've certainly been impressed by him."

He also went on to say that Herrera has been scoring the best goals in training this season at United - waxing lyrical over a player he is clearly happy United signed:

"It's difficult to say [who has scored the best goal in training but probably] Herrera again. He's scored a few good goals. We play quite a few 11-a-side games and he's hit some nice goals, shaped into the top corner from the edge of the box. So probably him, to be honest."

So he will be pleased to hear that Herrera looks set to return to action on Monday night against West Brom. He has been suffering with a rib injury but has been training with the first-team and is set to wear a protective corset in order to feature for the club.

Which Keane and United fans will be pleased to hear.
