ANDER HERRERA HAS won Manchester United’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award in a historically close vote, topping Antonio Valencia and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The midfielder finished just 242 votes clear of the Ecuadorian, with the big striker finishing a close third.

Among the highlights of the season for the Spaniard were a goal and an assist in a 2-0 win over Chelsea last month.

Herrera takes over the award from fellow Spanish star David de Gea, who took home the prize last season.

While the midfielder took home the club’s top award, right-back Valencia was voted by United players as their player of the season.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan was the winner for the club’s Goal of the Season award for his superb effort against Sunderland, and 16-year-old Angel Gomes became the youngest ever winner of the club’s Youth Team Player of the Year award.
