Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes his teammate, Antonio Valencia is the best right back in the world.
The defender has been utilised under Jose Mourinho, as he takes his preseason form into the new EPL campaign.
And Herrera believes only Juventus full-back Dani Alves can be put in the same bracket as Valencia at the moment.
“I know him and have always liked the way he plays,” Herrera told MUTV. “I think Antonio is one of the best right-backs in the world.
“I know he’s not a normal right-back because he used to play as a winger, but I think that, right now, he is the best right-back in the world, maybe with Dani Alves, because I like Dani Alves a lot.
“When you have a right-back who is quick to defend and he is crossing maybe six or seven times a game, always or almost always successfully, then he understands football.
“When I have the ball, I know that Antonio’s always ready to receive it, always to give you one solution.
“I think he’s going to be very important this season. He has already been very important for the club, he has already been here seven years, but I think I told you at the end of the last season something good is being cooked and everyone wants to be part of that.”
