Ander Herrera admits he hasn't set himself a target at Manchester United

Ander Herrera Signing

Ander Herrera is making all the right noises with his comments on Manchester United's attack.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has admitted to the club’s website that he’s not set himself a target in terms of scoring goals this season.

Herrera bagged his fifth strike of the season in a losing cause last weekend as United fell victims to a double from Swansea City.

“I haven’t really got a target for goals, I think we’re a very attacking side and I just want to help,” said Herrera.

“I don’t want to stop now, I want to keep working and helping the team. The most important thing is that we win.”

The comments will be extremely encouraging for United’s manager Louis van Gaal who will be eager for the creative players in his attack to start firing and setting up wins in important games.

Next up for United is a game against Sunderland and they should be well rested and refreshed heading into the contest as they don’t play in Europe this week.

That won’t be an easy game with Sunderland having shown signs of improvement in their game against West Brom last weekend.

With three goals and three assists to his name from seven starts in the Premier League, some United fans may wonder why he hasn’t been starting more.

Van Gaal needs to keep him in the midfield because he’s in form, determined and is making all of the right noises as the club hunts fourth place.
