United club podcast hosts Ellen Evans and Sam Homewood have traveled to the Athletic Stadium from Bilbao to chat with former Red Devils player Ander Herrera. The full version of the video will be released only on Monday, but today the club shared the most emotional moment.

The presenters started talking about the midfielder’s last day at Old Trafford. Herrera began to talk about how he came to the stadium with his daughter, and then a lump rolled up in his throat and Ander could not continue, leaving the studio for a while.

Homewood later asked Herrera about how events had unfolded in recent years. Ander said he felt at the time that his contract situation had not been handled correctly.

“It was difficult to leave because six months before, five months before, I expected to be offered to stay,” the player explains. – Now is not the time to speak badly of anyone and I do not intend to, but after my third season at the club, I expected a little more from the club. I received the “Player of the Year” award from the fans, but no one called me and offered to renew the contract. To be honest, I was in pain. I think I deserved an extension and they didn’t. After that, the conditions changed, some moments did not suit me. People come and go, but the club itself and the logo remain the same. I never allowed myself to say anything bad about United because I am grateful.

But leaving was painful. Felt depressed. When there was a year left on the contract, they did not approach me. I fought until the last day, no problems, kept the contract to the end. But in my opinion, in the opinion of my agent and my family, they didn’t come on time.”

Ander Herrera left United in 2019 after spending five seasons at the club. During this time he played in 189 matches, scored 20 goals and won 4 trophies. After three years at PSG, he returned to Athletic.
