Herrera could wear 'corset' in Man Utd return - van Gaal

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has suggested that Ander Herrera may wear protection on his ribs this weekend.

The Spanish midfielder has missed United's past two matches with a fractured rib but could be back in action against West Bromwich Albion on Monday night according to van Gaal.

"Herrera is a fit player and he only had a rib fracture, so we can play him with a corset," van Gaal told reporters. "Then he can play. But, of course, I have to select him first."

Herrera has had a positive beginning to life at Old Trafford with two goals in four Premier League appearances since his summer move from Athletic Bilbao.
