Chris Smalling insists he has nothing to prove after Jose Mourinho's criticism

Belotti- Cropped

Ander Herrera considers Manchester United team-mate Paul Pogba to have "everything" and believes they work well together as a pair.

"He is The Special One because he wins".

"We had never trained with it before but it worked out well".

Pogba also declared his first season back at Old Trafford as "complicated", after his world-record move. With the other players, I felt at ease from the first moment on.

The Red Devils won 2-0 against Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League final to secure their place in next season's Champions League.

"So the type of football I'm playing as a midfielder, because the team was not doing so well most of the time, is not like at United as we don't have the ball".

"I arrived at Manchester United and do you know how many of these players were champions? I am more mature as well, physically and mentally, and I am ready to come back and hopefully push to play next season for United". "All in all, it was a good season for us". "That's all a player needs".

But Smalling says the fact he played with a broken toe in United's 4-0 defeat at Chelsea last October was evidence of his commitment to the United cause.

Beyond June's two-week Confederations Cup, which will pull players away from Germany, Portugal and Chile of the major football nations, this is a summer without a major global tournament, and will give managers far longer to bed in their coaching philosophy.

"I think his numbers speak for themselves and he's still got a long way to go in his career".

"If he wasn't interested, I think he would just leave you alone and he wouldn't say any of these things. The most important thing is the ideas".

"Inter was in big trouble, Real Madrid was in big trouble, Manchester United in big trouble, that is, always in big trouble".
