Mourinho was irked by the 28-year-old's comments but Herrera said ahead of United's league clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon (Saturday evening AEDT) that there was no rift with the Portuguese.
Shearer believes that Pochettino's side could pick up victory over the Red Devils, but is expecting Jose Mourinho to employ tactics to frustrate the attacking threat of Spurs, who will be missing Harry Kane through injury.
And, as per multiple outlets in England today, the Spurs star may soon get his wish of a sky-high wage-slip, with rumours intensifying that his club and Manchester United could engage in negotiations over a swap deal between he and Luke Shaw.
"If he was a central midfield player, yes, because we have only two".
"Every time over the last months when we are going to compete and play, [people say] that game will be. against Liverpool, Real Madrid and now in Manchester", he added.
The England global freely admits he wants to link up once more with Pochettino eventually, with the full-back even saying "I think he really wants me to play under him again".
"I would be very disappointed if his words were different", Mourinho told the press on Friday at United's Manchester training base. I told the players they are not machines and its so hard to cope with worldwide duty, play every three days. But at left back we have so many options, so the situation is not easy.
Writing in the epilogue of Guillem Balague's new book, Brave New World: Inside Pochettino's Spurs, Shaw spoke glowingly about his former manager and said he would be keen on working under the Argentine once again. I do hope that I can play for him again one day.
"We'll defend him as a team but with United, it's not just about Romelu, they have a number of very good players. But he's in the squad, he works and maybe the opportunity comes".
