PSG midfielder Ander Herrera has taken a swipe at former club Manchester United.

Herrera left United for Paris this summer after coming off contract and admits the commercial aspect of his old club left him cold.

He told So Foot: “Since I’ve been here, what I’m seeing is that I’m in a club that thinks exclusively and only exclusively about football.

“It was not the case in Manchester? I was very happy in this incredible club. I am very grateful to his supporters. Frankly, I was immensely happy in Manchester, but in the club, there were times, where I felt that football was not considered the most important thing.

“Was business important then? That does not come out of my mouth, I do not know, but football was not the most important thing in Manchester. I do not want to compare, all I know is that here, I feel like breathing football on all sides. And I like that.”

United chief Ed Woodward has faced a steady stream of criticism in recent years, with Gary Neville calling for his sacking earlier this season. The Red Devils have suffered a drastic downturn in results since 2013 and current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing an uphill battle to turn results around. United play Brighton at the weekend in their final game before club action is put on hold for the two-week international break.
