The player is saying goodbye to the Red Devils, but he believes his former coach will bring a lot of success to the team.

Ander Herrera is leaving Old Trafford after his contract expires in the summer.

But before he leaves, he wanted to back current Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, to say he’s the right man for the job.

“I really believe in Ole. I really believe in Michael [Carrick], Kieran [McKenna], Mick Phelan, in Demps (Mark Dempsey), but I think there is a tough job ahead,” the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

“That is my opinion as a fan and as someone who knows the club at the moment.”

“These fans are the best, they are amazing, but they need time. They need time because this is not going to be on the first day. The club will need time, confidence and support,” he continued.

“I am sure they will give it but the only thing I ask for them is time because this is not easy.”

“[But] the right person is at the wheel. He’s the right person,” he said.

“He is one of the best people I have ever met in football. Everyone loves him in the dressing room. Everyone wants to fight for him.”

“When you have the players behind you and wanting to fight for you, part of the job is done,” he added.

“I believe in karma and if you are a good person, if you are honest and sincere with the players and the fans, sooner or later it will work.”

“I think Ole is the right person because he has qualities and knowledge but also he is a great man and a great person,” Herrera concluded.
