Ander Herrera believes the strikes available to Manchester United – Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Radamel Falcao – means Louis van Gaal has the best group of forwards in the world, according to ESPN.
“I want to try to score more goals. It’s very important for the midfielders,” Herrera said. “I like assists as well and I think we have maybe the best three strikers in the world here in Rooney, van Persie and Falcao.
“Juan [Mata], Angel [Di Maria], Adnan [Januzaj], Daley [Blind], Fletch [Darren Fletcher] and me are all going to help them try to score, and if I score of course I’ll be very happy.”
Herrera netted nine times in his Athletic career, having played 109 times for the Basque club after a move from Real Zaragoza.
