Manchester United new boy Ander Herrera has declared that the club’s front three of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao are the best in the world, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
He has even gone as far as to say that to play behind the trio is nothing less than an honour.
Herrera is currently out injured with a fractured rib, putting him on the sidelines shortly after his big money move from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
He said: “I want to try to score more goals. It’s very important for the midfielders.
“I like assists as well and I think we have maybe the best three strikers in the world here in Rooney, Van Persie and Falcao.
“Juan [Mata], Angel [Di Maria], Adnan [Januzaj], Daley [Blind], Fletch [Darren Fletcher] and me are all going to help them try to score, and if I score of course I’ll be very happy.
“The Premier League is a great league. It’s a very quick league, non-stop and great spectacle for the fans.
“That’s good because sometimes in other countries there are more teams that try to keep the ball in their end of the pitch but in the Premier League you will see a lot of goals.”
Man Utd began the new season in poor form, and fell to defeats against newly promoted Leicester and League One side MK Dons.
The loss against MK Dons was particularly humbling, with the minnows winning that game 4-0 against a weakened Man Utd side.
A series of signings seems to have arrested their poor form, however, with a pair of 2-1 wins prior to the international break against West Ham and Everton aiding their climb up the table.
