Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has revealed the player he feels can replace Ander Herrera at the club.
The Spaniard departed the club for PSG after disagreements over a new contract. But Neville believes there’s a player who can do the ‘Herrera job’ and fill his role for Solskjaer.
He had this to say: “There are loads of Ander Herreras around. He’s nothing special, honestly. There’s loads of him around.”
“No I’m not confident in [United’s existing options] but my point is if you said to me put McTominay in there for 30 games this season, will he do a lot worse than Herrera? I don’t think he will.
“I genuinely think, I know it sounds crazy, but Liverpool fans on [Jordan] Henderson and [James] Milner, they don’t really like them that much as players.
“But they actually accept that they give their all and if the team are winning and they’ve got a little bit of good around them, they’ll accept them.
“And that’s what Herrera is, those players. I was one of those at United for years where basically there were amazing players but actually there were five or six of us – myself, Darren Fletcher, John O’Shea, my brother, Nicky Butt – you need that solid element at a club but there’s lots of them around.
“The real big problem for United is getting the world-class players who are committed to the club.”
