Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that he expects many emotional moments to arrive at the club in the future, reports the Daily Mail.

The Spanish ace, who joined the Red Devils from La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao last summer, has admitted that he always plays with passion, insisting that every victory makes him happy. 

Fine form 

Herrera, of course, endured an indifferent start to the campaign, but has been in tremendous form of late, with the Red Devils closing in on a place in next year's Champions League competition.

And, with seven goals for Louis van Gaal's side this season, he has even been compared to club-legend Paul Scholes, but Herrera has insisting that the former Red Devils was a one off.

Speaking in a United Facebook question and answer session, Herrera stated: "There will never be another Scholes. He was a one off.

"I always play passionately – for the team and our supporters. I am emotional. Every win and every victory makes me happy but maybe I hope the most emotional moments are coming. I am sure of that, in fact, because I am at United."

The midfielder has also revealed that he's superstitious, insisting that's the reason why he uses his full name on the back of his shirt.

He continued by saying: "I did it before in Bilbao, and I am superstitious. I started using 'Ander Herrera' at Athletic a few years ago and I had a very good time there so I wanted to keep putting it on my shirt.

"I think Marcos Rojo is the same. Actually, in Spain, everyone has at least three names including the last name of both their dad and their mum."

Huge future 

Herrera finally appears to be settled at The Theatre of Dreams and will no doubt have a key role to play over the coming years. The Spaniard has gone from strength-to-strength under Louis van Gaal and is showing exactly what he can offer the side. 

With great vision and creativity, the Spaniard also has an eye for goal, which is ideal for the Red Devils as they go in search of success. 

He's well suited to the Premier League, too, so has it all going for him as he goes about making a name for himself in Manchester. Expect him to constantly deliver over the next few seasons at Old Trafford.
