Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera hopes to be available for selection again “soon” after the Spaniard was ruled out for the weekend clash with Sunderland - one of seven players unavailable to Louis van Gaal.

Treatment table

Herrera made his competitive debut for Manchester United in the opening day defeat to Swansea City and, although the Spaniard completed just over an hour in that game, it was not the rigours of the loss that placed him on the treatment table.

Van Gaal confirmed on Friday that Herrera had actually sustained a hamstring injury in training, which left the Manchester Untied manager to still lament the undue stress placed on his players with an extensive pre-season tour of the USA.

Herrera is one of four midfielders injured for the trip to the Stadium of Light, with Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard also out, although it is hoped the former will return for the encounter with Burnley next weekend.


The 25-year-old is certainly optimistic he will be back for the game at Turf Moor, and tweeted on Saturday to claim he “will be ready again soon”.

Much is expected of Herrera this season following his £32 million arrival from Athletic Bilbao, although is ascension into a player of real importance may depend on the club’s ability to acquire another quality midfielder to slot in alongside him.
