Ander Herrera has labelled David de Gea a “genius” and says Louis van Gaal is the “right guy” to take Manchester United forward.
Van Gaal has a reputation for being a difficult man to get along with, but Herrera says he has no issue with the Dutchman despite being dropped for United’s last two games against CSKA Moscow and West Brom.
Herrera told Catalunya Radio: “He’s a very demanding person, very forward and very sincere, which I value a lot. To you guys (the press), he might seem a bit tough, but I think he’s a good guy and I think he wants what’s best for the club.
“On a personal level, I have a very good relationship with him. I know he can look tough from outside the club, but from within, he’s the right guy to help us improve.”
On De Gea, Herrera added: “He’s a genius. Purely on talent, I’ve never seen someone like him and we are lucky to have him.
“The talent he has, very few have it in the world and David is one of them. It’s a blessing to have him close, and hopefully it will be for a long time.”
