Manchester United legend Paul Scholes backs Ander Herrera as his former club's best signing of the season | Daily Mail Online
What say you?Ander Herrera has been one of the stand-out stars of Manchester United's impressive second half of the season, and now he has a member of Old Trafford midfield royalty singing his praises.
Paul Scholes picked the Spanish midfielder as the best signing of the season for United towards the end of a campaign that has shown much improvement compared to last year.
Herrera struggled to find a place in Louis van Gaal's side in his first few months in the Barclays Premier League, but he has since grown to become one of the first names on the team-sheet in midfield.
And with the likes of Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria failing to live up to expectations after their summer moves, Scholes picked £29million Herrera as the Dutch manager's top purchase.
'I think it was difficult for all the signings at first,' Scholes said, speaking to Ireland's Newstalk radio. 'The first six, seven, eight months were very difficult.
'Herrera’s been the one who’s impressed me most. He was another who struggled to get into the team early on but now he’s playing really well, really good football.
'He looks like he’s going to score goals, looks like he’s going to make goals, so he’s been a great addition. He’s only a young lad as well so hopefully can get even better.'
