Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has praised manager Jose Mourinho for bringing home the silverware in his first season at the club.

The Red Devils were sixth in the final Premier League standings, but victory in the Europa League means they qualify for next season’s Champions League, and can add that trophy to the League Cup and Community Shield.

"First season, three trophies. Our manager is a winner," Herrera told Sky Sports. "Now we are going to play Champions League.

"We are already thinking about the European Super Cup. Football is about trophies, no? About achieving objectives.

"In the beginning of the season we were talking about that. The manager said he was coming to Manchester United to win trophies and he has done it."


 
"He told me that I was going to play sometimes a different role in the team. He told me sometimes I was going to play more defensive and in other games he was going to need me more forward. I told him I'd play wherever he wanted me to play and I would give my best."
