Ander Herrera’s scouting report from Rowley from Arsenal

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.

      I totally agree, he is far to overpriced at the start of the game and as you can see from my screen shots he has no interest to join Arsenal so you’d have to be a top club to sign him anyway!

      But you can get him for less than half that price after a few years and for what he progresses to be he’s worth it :D

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

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

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 18, 2012

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

      • comment avatar BWR July 18, 2012

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

        • comment avatar Jonathan Carver July 18, 2012

          That is really lucky haha wish that would happen on my save :D

          My next profile will be next Tuesday but Karl and Ryan will do one each before then :)

        If you’re from Birtley and that age you must know Gary Madine? He’s gone far
