Ander Herrera has opened up on his recent departure from Manchester United, bringing an end to his five-year stay at Old Trafford
Herrera decided against extending his stay at the Manchester club, after a relatively successful stay in which he won numerous titles including the Europa League.
The Spanish further urged players to take responsibility over a poor season, which saw them miss out on the Champions League, finishing sixth in the league.
“We have to take responsibility,” [the players] “All of us. It’s not fair to blame others. When you have a bad season, 75% is the responsibilities of the players,” he said.
“It’s very easy when a manager is sacked to blame someone else, but it is the fault of every one of us. Every player in the dressing room has a responsibility for what has happened this season. We have done bad things.”
“We have done some good things but, for Manchester United, it is not enough. Probably 14 teams, if they are sixth, they are happy, but Manchester United cannot be happy,”
Herrera was voted the Player of the Year in Jose Mourinho’s first season at the club in 2016/17, and many of the club’s fans were left dismayed by the decision to allow the Spanish leave, feeling he had a lot to offer.
His next stop is not yet clear, but reports indicate he might be on his way to PSG.
