Ander Herrera’s profile aged 28 in 2017

Ander Herrera’s career history until 2017

Herrera is another Spanish player with great technique, his intelligence makes him a great passer of the ball, and this makes him exciting to watch. At the start of the game he has just joined Athletic so it takes a huge offer for them to part with him and even then Herrera will only move for the top teams. In 2017, he becomes one of the most technically gifted players on the game, his passing, first touch, technique and creativity attributes are world class and he could become even better with human management. He has a impressive history and has earned a good number of appearances for the Spanish national team!!

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

Interesting player there Jonathan, I think Herrera is too expensive but like many others he could be bought cheaper later in the game which would make him an excellent purchase and the community should still have the chance to see such great development.


In my save, he’s now 25 and have 19 for passing and creativity. What a BEAST!!

A great playmaker


Athletic got relegated first season in my game. Got Herrera for 6.5 and Muniain for 9. :D

Darren Smith

Now that seems like a bargain and a very bizarre game.


I was definitely surprised when it happened! Any idea when the next player profile is coming out?


Whoa Jonathan, I live in Harlow Green and go to school in Birtley!
