Departing Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will bring success back to the club again.

Herrera, 29, confirmed last week that he would leave Old Trafford this summer having spent five years at the club, playing under three coaches – Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer.

The latter enjoyed a fine start to his United reign and, despite a significant slump in form over the last two months, Herrera is confident the club have the right man at the helm.

“I really believe in Ole,” he told the club’s official website.

“I really believe in Michael [Carrick], Kieran [McKenna], Mike Phelan and in Demps [Mark Dempsey], but I think there is a tough job ahead.

“They need time because this is not going to be from the first day.

“[Solskjaer] is one of the best people I have ever met in football. Everyone loves him in the dressing room. Everyone wants to fight for him.

“When you have the players behind you and wanting to fight for you, part of the job is done. I believe in karma and if you are a good person, if you are honest and sincere with the players and the fans, sooner or later it will work.

“I think Ole is the right person because he has qualities and knowledge but, also, he is a great man and a great person.”
