Manchester United star Ander Herrera has told his teammates that finishing fourth this season is not good enough, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Red Devils finished fourth in the last campaign – which was the first at the club for both Herrera and manager Louis van Gaal – but the 26-year-old believes that that would not be acceptable this time around.
“Last season was the first with the new staff and a lot of new players like me but, now, we have no excuses,” he said.
“We have to fight for everything.
“We are going to try to win every game. When I see the millions of supporters we have, I just think we cannot be fourth in the league, we have to be higher,” he added.
The Old Trafford outfit have made a promising start to the new season, and while their position counts for little this early on, they will be pleased to currently sit in fifth place after two wins from their opening four games.
However, like their next opponents Liverpool, they are coming off the back of their first defeat of the campaign, and will know that a defeat against Brendan Rodgers’ side will ruin the bright start they made.
On a personal level, the former Athletic Bilbao playmaker will be hoping that he enjoys a more prominent role in the side moving forward, after making just one start in the Premier League this season.
