According to the former English Premier League footballer, the ex-Manchester United midfielder has failed into the same category as one of “those players.”
Ander Herrera left Manchester United to join Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1.
And according to former English Premier League player, Gary Neville, the Spaniard has “nothing special.”
“Herrera to be fair huffed and puffed, but there are loads of him around,” Neville was quoted by Goal.
“There’s loads of Ander Herreras around. He’s nothing special, honestly. There are loads of him around.”
Neville explained: “No I’m not confident in [United’s existing options] but my point is if you said to me put McTominay in there for 30 games this season, will he do a lot worse than Herrera? I don’t think he will.”
“I genuinely think, I know it sounds crazy, but Liverpool fans on [Jordan] Henderson and [James] Milner, they don’t really like them that much as players.”
“But they actually accept that they give their all and if the team is winning and they’ve got a little bit of good around them, they’ll accept them,” he added.
“And that’s what Herrera is, those players.”
“I was one of those at United for years where basically there were amazing players but actually there were five or six of us – myself, Darren Fletcher, John O’Shea, my brother, Nicky Butt – you need that solid element at a club but there are lots of them around,” he commented.
“The real big problem for United is getting the world-class players who are committed to the club.”
