Alexis Sanchez’ defensive “fight” can make him stand out at Manchester United, says teammate Ander Herrera.
“What I really like from him is the way he fights when the team loses the ball,” Herrera told MUTV. “He’s always ready to be the first defender for the team, and that’s big for us.
“Obviously we know his quality on the ball, he’s amazing, but his fight, the way he defends, he’s the first player to defend — I really like it.”
Michael Carrick captained United on his first showing since September, stabilising the midfield for Jose Mourinho’s side.
And the former England midfielder was another to hail Sanchez’s signing, saying: “He is not bad, is he? Not bad for a little man.
“He is going to be a terrific player — he is a proper Manchester United player, and it’s great to have him here.
“He is so exciting and so dynamic. He’s always looking to create opportunities, to play forward and the fans are going to enjoy watching him, hopefully we will enjoy playing with him.”
