    Herrera excited to follow Ibrahimovic’s lead at Man Utd

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s arrival at Manchester United provides the team with a strong figure to follow and will help them become more prolific, according to midfielder Ander Herrera.

    United came under fire for a dull brand of football during Louis van Gaal’s tenure, with Stoke City the only top-half Premier League side to score fewer than their 49 goals last season.

    But Herrera is feeling confident following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager and the signing of Ibrahimovic, who scored a brilliant […]
