Manchester United furious with club for failing Ander Herrera

Manchester United fans were absolutely furious with the club for allowing Ander Herrera to leave for free, believing one of their best players shouldn’t have been allowed to depart.

The Spaniard initially struggled to make an impact, ironically playing his best football under Jose Mourinho rather than the man who bought him in Louis van Gaal.

In the Portuguese’s first season in charge Herrera was fantastic, playing as a defensive midfielder who not only protected his defence but gave Paul Pogba the platform to perform.

It’s no surprise that was the campaign the former Atletico Bilbao man won personal awards and fans grew to love him.

At a time supporters feeling their squad lacks any passion or leadership, letting go of Ander who embodies that, seems a little strange.

It’s unclear whether Herrera’s departure is down to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opting against offering him a new deal or the board unwilling to match his wages.

Fans get the feeling that it was the incompetent hierarchy who failed which is in line with reports that claimed the midfielder was unhappy with how late they approached him.

Whatever the case, next season will show whether Ander is a loss to the team or not and one can only hope Scott McTominay steps up big time.
