The Spaniard was called up to his national side by new boss Julen Lopetegui, although he sat on the bench during their 1-1 draw with Italy.

After the match, Herrera was quick to praise Mourinho’s impact at Old Trafford and the freedom he’s added to everyone at the club.

‘Mourinho gives you more freedom as a player; he wants the player’s instinct to come through,’ he told El Correo.

‘It’s true that you then have to have that defensive order but he tells us to let that if that instinct guides us on the pitch then we should try things.

‘It’s been difficult back [in the Spain squad] because this is the fifth season since the Olympics.

‘I’m overjoyed because I have fought hard for it. I know that in the two years under Van Gaal I was not in the United team enough to be called up.

‘Now with Mourinho I’m feeling good. He is putting faith in me and giving me that chance to play regularly in a top side.

‘Now I have to show that I deserve to stay in the United XI and deserve to keep getting the call to join the Spain squad.’
