Andre Herrera has revealed that there were differences between him and the Manchester United board that lead to his exit from the Old Trafford this summer.
Ander Herrera was one of our consistent performers in the middle of the pitch for the past few seasons, however, the Spaniard decided to join PSG on a free transfer after his contract at the Old Trafford was up last week.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was said to be a big fan of the 29-year-old and the Norwegian ‘reportedly’ urged Ed Woodward to do everything he could to extend midfielder’s contract.
However, the talks between the club and the player came to nothing as the Spaniard finally completed a free move to PSG in what could turn out to be a major transfer coup for the French Champions.
Now, in an interview, Ander Herrera has revealed his reasons for joining PSG ahead of staying at Manchester United:
“I don’t like looking at the past,” Herrera said.
“But there were differences regarding the project and my importance within it.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Herrera had nothing but nice things to say on his time at the Old Trafford:
“It has been fantastic. In five years I have played 189 games and I have been important for all the coaches.
“It is true that that the MVP (Sir Matt Busby award, 2016/17) makes one feel special and very happy, but I keep every moment that I have lived.”
Manchester United still haven’t managed to replace Ander Herrera who was always committed to give his 100% on the pitch. Hopefully, we will do that before the closing of the transfer window.
