Man Utd midfielder Herrera not suited to Premier League - Ince

Paul Ince believes Ander Herrera's game is not suited to English football.


The Spaniard has impressed at times for Manchester United this season but has still not won over Louis van Gaal as evidenced by just six Premier League starts.

Herrera has taken a little time to adjust to England since arriving from Athletic Bilbao for £24million in the summer of 2014 and Ince feels he simply may not be suited to the rigours of the Premier League.

"When they bought Herrera I thought it was a lot of money and when I first saw him he was small and looked quite weak, especially for the Premier League," former United midfielder Ince told 888poker.com.

"I watched him play in Spain and he suits the Spanish game but I don't think he suits the Premier League. When he plays he gets forward and gets a couple of goals but Van Gaal has gone for two strong ones sitting in there and it's hard for him to fit into that."
