Herrera speaks out following United departure

It's been a dismal season for Manchester United and their supporters will be glad that it's finally over. The Red Devils slumped to a sixth placed finish ensuring there'll be no Champions League football at Old Trafford in 19/20 and they also ended the campaign a massive 32 points behind Champions Manchester City.

United are an absolute shambles both on and off the pitch at the minute and you can't help but feel sorry for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has a colossal job on his hands re-building the club that he loves. So much needs doing to get this club competing again, both on and off the pitch.

A director of football is likely to be the first port of call to aid Solskjaer in the transfer windoiw, in what is going to be arguably the most important in the clubs history. They need players in pretty much every area and they also run the risk of losing a few, with record signing Paul Pogba linked with a move to Real Madrid.

They've already had to contend with one, with fans favourite Ander Herrera announcing his departure before their final game of the season against Cardiff City last Sunday. The Spaniard's passion and commitment really endeared him to the clubs supporters during his time at Old Trafford and he's going to depart on a free transfer when his contract expires this summer after 5 years of service. Which looks like poor business for a number of reasons, especially after paying £28m for him back in 2014.

Ander Herrera

The Spaniard has spoken out on the Red Devils' horrendous season to the clubs official website and it doesn't make good reading for his teammates. "We have to take responsibility," [the players] "All of us. It's not fair to blame others. When you have a bad season, 75% is the responsibilities of the players.

"It's very easy when a manager is sacked to blame someone else, but it is the fault of everyone of us. Every player in the dressing room has a responsibility for what has happened this season. We have done bad things."

"We have done some good things but, for Manchester United, it is not enough. Probably 14 teams, if they are sixth, they are happy, but Manchester United cannot be happy."

It's good to see a player come out and take responsibility for misgivings on the pitch, as many earlier in the season pinned it on Jose Mourinho, but all of his claims about this United squad that were laughed off during his tenure look to be true. He claimed last seasons 2nd placed finish was the biggest achievement of his career and it's now easy to see why he said that, with the club in the worst state they've been in for some time.

Mourinho was sacked back in December for a number of reasons, the main being his breakdown in relationship with some of United's senior stars. But Hererra added that he always had a tremendous amount of admiration for the 56 year-old.

“If we are speaking about this last season, I have huge respect for Jose," Herrera added. "He tried everything. The first season with him was quite successful."

"Then we were second and we had a lot of expectation for this season but it didn't work. Not only because of him because, I repeat, every player has responsibility."
