Herrera: 'Man Utd going in right direction'

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera claims that his side are moving in the right direction despite ending the 2017-18 season without silverware.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has claimed that his side are heading in the right direction despite ending the 2017-18 season without silverware.

United improved their Premier League position from sixth in 2016-17 to second this term, but they still finished 19 points behind champions and local rivals Manchester City.

Defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday confirmed a trophiless campaign for Jose Mourinho's side, but Herrera is satisfied with the team's progress.

"I think we are going to the right way. This season, we cannot take credit out from what Man City have done because they deserve to be champions and they have been almost perfect this season, or perfect. I think we have to keep going in this way. I think we are doing things right and try to be back playing finals," he told reporters.

"I think I've been here already four seasons and I have played a lot of finals here, which is very good. This club is about trophies but first of all to win trophies you have to play finals and I think we are doing that. I think we've done good.

"Normally in a normal Premier League we should have been fighting for the title with the amount of points we had. But Man City did perfect, so the only thing we can do is try to do the same next season.

"Try to not make some mistakes that we made this season - some games that we should have won against teams that - with all my respect for the team - we should win those games. As I told you, keep fighting for titles, keep coming to Wembley - hopefully - and that's all we can do."

United won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League during Mourinho's debut season in charge of the club.
