Herrera reveals the secret behind Mourinho’s training sessions at Manchester United

Ander Herrera believes the key to Jose Mourinho’s approach at Manchester United is down to his ‘dynamic’ approach to training and team meetings.

Following Louis van Gaal reign where players were reportedly frustrated with the Dutchman’s lengthy tactical sessions and individual critiques, Mourinho has adopted the opposite philosophy following his arrival at Old Trafford.

Mourinho has publicly criticised several of his key players in the squad, including Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Luke Shaw and Chris Smalling, but Herrera believes the Portuguese’s direct approach is working.

‘We have a saying in Spain,’ Herrera told The Daily Mail.

‘You catch the liar before you catch the lame man. It’s true in life and even more so in football. If a coach is not straight, players soon find him out. Mourinho is very straight.

‘He says what he thinks and he says it to your face. He says it when it is something we will like but he also says it when it is something we won’t like.

‘The team is enjoying the day to day. Training is very dynamic and everything is with the ball so the players never lose concentration – there are no really long sessions or long team talks.

‘He really understands what a footballer needs which is 20 minutes of team talk and then you get down to it.’
