​Ander Herrera picks up Man Utd Player of the Year award

Ander Herrera has been awarded Manchester's United Player of the Year award.

The Spaniard, who United bought from Athletico Bilbao for £28m in 2014, collected the award at the Red Devil's end of season awards ceremony at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

The 27-year old established himself as a regular under Jose Mourinho this season, amassing 31 Premier League matches across the campaign.

The award was handed to a Spaniard for the fourth consecutive year after David De Gea had won the previous three trophies.

Speaking at the ceremony, Herrera said: "It's very special for me to win this award because when you see the list you know how important it is and, of course, I stop David and the trophy stays in Spain as well,"

"I feel it, I'm very thankful but I think a Man United player can never stop, we have to give all the affection back because you can see we don't always perform at our best and we have to keep giving them affection.

"The most important game of the season next week, we can make a great season, if we win it, win three titles, so massive game but we have to respect the opponent."
