Ander Herrera has credited Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s man management skills and rapport with the squad for Manchester United’s change in fortune in recent weeks.
The Red Devils resurgence since the exit of Jose Mourinho has brought back belief and joy to the club with the club currently mounting a late push for a top four position.
Solskjaer has masterminded an eight-game winning streak with one draw following his arrival in December.

And with the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial all enjoying a good run of form since he took charge at Old Trafford, Ander Herrera has opened up on what he believes is the key behind the success story ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Leicester City.
“Ole had that click with some players that they are performing at their best,” Herrera told ESPN FC. “He is getting the best from Rashford, he is getting the best from Paul, he is getting the best from Anthony, from Jesse. That’s not easy.
“When you are a manager, we sometimes speak too much about tactics. But the most difficult thing for a manager is to get the best from his best players and this manager is doing it. We have all seen it.”
Herrera, 29, has equally benefited from Solskjaer’s appointment saying: “I have been told a lot of times ‘you should wear the armband in the future’ but I don’t need it.
“I don’t go crazy with that. I think the best thing a team can have is different leaders. We need it from all the players.
“Of course I am very thankful to the fans that feel I can be the captain or the leader of the club but I honestly don’t think that we should have only one. I feel I could be a leader in some moments but I don’t think I am the only leader at the club.”
