The Manchester United hierarchy has come under a lot of scrutiny in the recent past and has been gathering more traction with players starting to point a finger at them.
Ander Herrera is a fan favourite at Manchester United. The Spaniard joined Red Devils from Athletic Club in 2014. Since then Herrera lifted the FA Cup, League Cup and was instrumental in the Europa League winning campaign. However, a badly managed contractual situation resulted in Herrera joining Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The 29-year-old has since come out and spoken about the situation surrounding his departure from the English side and it is not good reading for people running the club.
“Differences regarding the project”
Ander Herrera has revealed the Manchester United board failed to convince him which resulted in him moving to PSG.“I don’t like looking at the past but there were differences regarding the project and my importance within it,” Herrera told Marca.
“I was very happy, I have a lot to thank the club for, the fans and also Solskjaer. He did a lot for me to stay, but things didn’t happen. They arrived late and, by then, I’d already made the decision to play in Paris.”
Herrera’s time at United
Ander Herrera has however spoken fondly about the club and the fans.“It has been fantastic. In five years I have played 189 games and I have been important for all the coaches,” he continued.
“It is true that that the MVP (Sir Matt Busby Award) makes one feel special and very happy, I keep every moment that I have lived. Why PSG? Because to leave United, the biggest team in England, you need something like PSG, which is the biggest in France. I could not play in another English club”
Herrera, an experienced head and reliable performer, would ideally be retained to aid this transition. But because of the incapability of the Manchester United hierarchy, the Red Devils will need to invest in another player. Given how the Board have taken ages to negotiate deals, things don’t look rosy at Old Trafford.
