Among ever-increasing injury concerns, there might be a good news coming up for Manchester United fans. Ander Herrea hinted that he is well on course to return to the team this weekend.
The Spanish midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during United’s 2-1 win over Watford last month. Since then, Van Gaal has lost key players Schneiderlin and Rooney through injury. Bastian Schewinsteiger is also facing a three match ban for violent conduct in the clash against West Ham.
In this situation, the Dutch manager is really lacking options at the heart of the Red Devils’ midfield. Ander Herrera’s return will be a major boost for the club.
Recently, Manchester United were kicked out of Champions League by Wolfsburg and Herrera was not a part of that team. He did not fly with his team to Germany and was busy focusing on rehabilitation.
Van Gaal was deeply criticized recently after his team consistently failed to produce goal-scoring chances. He has made a record of 0-0 draws at Old Trafford. It will really be a lifeline for the former Netherlands coach to get a crafty playmaker like Ander Herrer back into the lineup.
The former Athletic Bilbao midfielder recently tweeted indicating his early return.
not a bad day to put in some hard work on the pitch. getting closer to a return. Good luck to my teammates tonight ?pic.twitter.com/txnXANV76R

Now it all depends on the fitness test ahead of Saturday when United take a trip to face a confident Bournemouth side. The fans will be eagerly hoping for a comeback of Herrera and their team.
