Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera played down suggestions of dressing room disharmony at Old Trafford as he thanked manager Jose Mourinho for helping him earn an international call-up.

United have made an underwhelming start to life under Mourinho, despite a significant outlay in the summer which saw the club pay a world record £89million transfer fee for midfielder Paul Pogba.

They currently lie six points off the Premier League's top four and speculation is rife some key members of the squad are unhappy with Mourinho's methods at Old Trafford..

But Spaniard Herrera rejected those suggestions, saying: "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.

"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."
