Danny Murphy has rather shockingly claimed that he would absolutely smash Manchester United’s Ander Herrera on the pitch during a match.
The pundit was clearly furious with the Spaniard and somewhat unprofessionally revealed just how he feels about the player.
Herrera was a part of the United squad that tremendously secured a comeback win against fierce rivals Manchester City to delay their title win.
Jose Mourinho’s men found themselves trailing 2-0 at half time but fired back after the break through a Paul Pogba brace and a Chris Smalling winner.
Murphy however didn’t hide how he felt about the former Atletico Bilbao man and declared it would be his task to physically hurt the player.
According to Caught Offside, Danny said to talkSPORT: “What I can judge him [Herrera] on is that he continually, every time I watch him, tries to stitch other players up.
“He’s the type of player, and there’s not many that I’d say this about, if I played against him, I’d make him my business and smash him.”
As much as the pundit hates him, Ander is actually a Red Devils’ fan favourite due to his passion and love for the club he represents.
The midfielder appears to be one of the rare modern footballers who actually understand what it means to play for a club and to learn about it’s history as well as tradition.
Ander Herrera takes great pride in playing for Manchester United and it’s exactly that which endears him to the Old Trafford faithful.
Although he played quite well against City it’s fair to say he didn’t have the best of seasons this time around and won’t survive on the club purely on passion.
Herrera has now had the ideal performance to build on in order to throw himself back into contention for a starting XI spot.
