Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera has accused Manchester United of not prioritising football.
The 30-year-old left Old Trafford on a free transfer in summer after he failed to sign new contract with the red Devils. The latters claimed they offered to pay Herrera £200,000 but the Spain international decided to join PSG.
In an interview with French magazine So Foot, the player told he felt there was a time when the football wasn’t the most important thing at Old Trafford.
He told: “I was very happy in this incredible club. I am very grateful to the supporters. I was immensely happy in Manchester but in the club there were times when I felt that football was not considered the most important thing.”
When it was suggested that ‘the business’ was the priority at United, Herrera replied: “That does not come out of my mouth. I don’t know, but football was not the most important thing in Manchester. I do not want to compare, all I know is that here, I feel like I’m breathing football on all sides. And I like it. I cannot talk about what was happening in previous seasons because I was not [at PSG]. But, since I’m here, what I see is that I’m in a club that thinks solely and exclusively about football. And I say it sincerely because sometimes, seen from the outside, PSG can have a glamorous side that can irritate some. But here we sweat, we train, we work. When I arrive at the training centre, physios, podiatrists and physical trainers are already at work. Football, football, football. Leonardo (the sporting director) is there every day.”
