It was a great week for the Red Devils as Jose Mourinho’s side prevailed 1-0 against top four rivals Tottenham Hotspurs at Old Trafford on Sunday. United managed to smother Tottenham’s pressing game, and it was Ander Herrera’s performance at the heart of the midfield which set it up.
The Spaniard was always known for his zeal and tenacity and both the attributes of his game were on display yesterday as he managed to nullify the Spurs attack.
Many fans took to twitter after the match, expressing their delight at the Spaniard’s zealous display- and some of them even named him “the Spanish Roy Keane”. Check out the tweets below!
Ander Herrera could be our next captain. Has the whole package… desire, workaholic, passionate, team player and inspiring to watch. #mufc

Ander Herrera’s commitment, closing down, cajoling, organisation & communication so important for #mufc as well as his technical qualities

Finally, it looks like we have that fabled, box to box, midfielder. Ander Herrera, is that man. Love his enthusiasm for the club too #mutv

Lots of Ander Herrera love in the media this morning. Quite some feat given Micki was man of the match and got the winner.

If I show Ander Herrera – tier passion while taking my economics exam do you think the teacher will blindly rate my answers and give me an A

Go find yourself a guy who cares about Manchester United more than Ander Herrera, impossible, you won't.
