Ander Herrera pins some blame on Man United players for poor season

Who is to blame for Man United’s season?

Soon to be former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has pinned some blame on the players for the Red Devils’ poor season.

It’s been a pretty poor campaign for Manchester United with all things considered.

The Red Devils started the season with Jose Mourinho in charge and were hoping to push for a Premier League title after finishing second the year before.

However, that really didn’t go to plan and Manchester United struggled to gain any momentum.

That led to Mourinho’s sacking at the end of 2018, and he was replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjær, who initially got things back on track before being named permanent manager.

Since then, though, Solskjær has also struggled, with Manchester United finishing 6th in the Premier League.

Now, outbound midfielder Ander Herrera has pinned blame on the players for Manchester United’s poor campaign.

“We have to take responsibility”

Speaking ahead of his summer exit, Herrera claimed the players should take some responsibility for this season.

“We have to take responsibility,” Herrera explained to Man United’s official website.

”All of us. It’s not fair to blame others. When you have a bad season, 75 percent is the responsibility of the players.

We will never forget United, for ever in our hearts. THANKS

A post shared by Ander Herrera (@anderherrera) on

“Every one of us has to take responsibility for what we have done wrong. It’s very easy when a manager is sacked to blame someone else but it is the fault of every one of us.

“Every player in the dressing room has a responsibility for what has happened this season.

“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.”
