Ander Herrera considers Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba to have “everything” and believes they work well together as a pair.
The pair were afforded plenty of opportunities to mould a midfield understanding in 2016-17, with both considered to be key men by Jose Mourinho.
Herrera has been asked to fill more of a holding role for the Red Devils, and thrived in that position, while Pogba is expected to dictate proceedings from the centre of the park.
Questions have been asked of the £89 million signing, but his team-mates are aware of his value and hope there will be plenty more successes to come with him as a focal point of the side – having secured three trophies in Mourinho’s debut season at the helm.
Herrera told Sport 360 on his partnership with Pogba: “It is easy to play with him, he is a top player.
“He likes to attack more than me so when we both play together I have to protect the defence more.
“I try to keep my position more because you know Paul has the ability to score; the ability to head, to shoot, to dribble – he has everything.
“I think we have a good partnership, hopefully we can play together for a long time and win trophies for the club.”
Herrera made 50 appearances across all competitions in the 2016/17 campaign, while Pogba took in 51 fixtures.
The Frenchman contributed nine goals, while his more defensive colleague found the target on two occasions.
Herrera’s efforts have seen him linked with a return to his homeland at Barcelona, but he remains fully committed to the United cause.
He added: “I have been really happy at United since the first day. The only thing I can do is to give everything every game and every minute of the time I am on the pitch.”
