NEWSSPORT  ADVERTISEMENT Ander Herrera takes dig at Manchester United board after PSG transfer Ander Herrera joined Paris Saint-Germain last week (Picture: Getty) Share this article via facebookShare this article via twitter 1.2k SHARES Metro Sport Reporter Monday 8 Jul 2019 9:31 am Ander Herrera has blamed Manchester United’s lack of urgency in contract negotiations for his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain. The Spaniard signed a five-year deal with the Ligue 1 giants last week to end his five-year stay at Old Trafford. The 29-year-old was a crowd favourite at the Theatre of Dreams and one of the few successful signings since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013. Herrera made 189 appearances for the Red Devils and was a constant under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who made the midfielder a regular starter again when he took charge in December 2018. Solskjaer was keen to keep Herrera (Picture: Getty) Solskjaer was keen to keep Herrera and made it clear to United’s board that the Spaniard was part of his plans moving forward at the club. However, United were fixated on new deals for the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, and allowed Herrera to run his contract down. The club eventually came round to making Herrera an offer in March but the Spaniard had already decided to join PSG and had verbally agreed on the move. And Herrera, who reserved praise for Solskjaer, has broken his silence on his departure to lay the blame at United’s board. ‘I don’t like looking at the past 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,’ Herrera told Marca. ‘He (Solskjaer) 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 spent five years at Old Trafford (Picture: Getty) Herrera won Manchester United’s Player of the Year award in 2017 after an impressive season under Jose Mourinho. The former Athletic Bilbao midfielder says it makes him feel ‘special’ to this day and says he could never have joined another English club after playing for United. ‘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) makes one feel special and very happy, I keep every moment that I have lived,’ said Herrera. ‘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’.
