Good news as Man United receive huge fitness boost for Swansea City game: report

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has confirmed that he has returned to full training after recovering from a hamstring problem sustained last month

The Spain international returned from a one-month lay-off to feature in the Champions League against Sevilla, but he managed to participate for only 17 minutes before succumbing to another muscular issue.

In his absence, Scott McTominay has been the regular partner alongside Nemanja Matic in midfield, and the Scot has been impressive with strong performances against the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool.

Speaking to United Review, Herrera has now revealed that he is raring go on after overcoming his injury concerns. The Spaniard has been restricted to just eight Premier League starts this term, but he is prepared to push for a starting role after the international break.

“I feel really good. I’ve been training with the team for five days now, and I feel good, I feel fit and ready to help the team after the international break,” he said.

“It was a pity to not be able to help the team after Sevilla away because I was feeling good before that, but football sometimes has these stops. Fortunately, I haven’t had too many [in my career].

“Now is the time to finish the season as well as I can and help the team and we want to try to win the FA Cup and keep the second place in the league.”

Herrera has not managed to have a similar influence as in previous seasons for the club, but he is still a valuable member of Mourinho’s squad.

The Spaniard could have been the ideal player to tackle Steven N’Zonzi movement versus Sevilla but unfortunately his injury did not help the situation.

Despite this, the 28-year-old could have a role to play towards the end of the season, if he is called upon from the bench or slotted in a three-man midfield.
