During his spell with the Merengues, Herrera was used mostly as a backup to the likes of Alfredo Di Stéfano, Francisco Gento, Raymond Kopa, Ferenc Puskás and Héctor Rial. In the 1959–60 edition of the European Cup, he scored three goals in five games – two against Jeunesse Esch (7–0 home win) and one against OGC Nice (2–3 away loss) – helping the team renew their supremacy in the competition.
On 4 September 1960, Herrera netted the fourth goal in a 5–1 defeat of C.A. Peñarol in the Intercontinental Cup (also the aggregate score). Shortly after, however, he was deemed surplus to requirements at Real Madrid and, in January 1962, was loaned to fellow La Liga club Real Sociedad until the end of the campaign, which ended in relegation for the Basques.
