Herrera admits it was inspired from his time on the LaLiga.
He told manutd.com: "...in Zaragoza, my hometown, my club that I grew up, I used to be known as Ander, just Ander.
"So I had on my shirt, Ander, and when I moved to Bilbao, everyone used to name me more like Ander Herrera because in Bilbao it's a Basque name, and there used to be more Anders, if you know what I mean, more people who are called Ander.
"So, to make the people differentiate between me and, for example, a team-mate that I used to have, Ander Iturraspe, I put Ander Herrera. Not just one specific reason, just because there are more people named in the team like me."
