Ander Herrera confirms Manchester United exit in tribute video


Herrera thanked Manchester United fans in an exclusive interview with the club's official website and talked about a number of topics …

Message for the fans:

& # 39; Yes … this is a sad moment to be honest, because I have enjoyed this club so much for the last five years, but I am here to announce that I am moving and I will follow do not become a Manchester United player this season. Of course, I have a message for the fans, because they have been incredible with me. I have so much to thank for all of them – they have given me so much love and support. Like I said before, this is not an easy day or an easy decision, but sometimes you have to make decisions in life.

& # 39; Sometimes the timing just isn't right and you have to move on. I don't want to be sad, I want to thank all the fans for everything they have done for me over the last five years. I have enjoyed playing so much for this club, I have felt so privileged to represent this club every time I have done it.

& # 39; Of course, the most important thing is the football side [of things] and I enjoyed every time I represented the United shirt on the field for the club, but also off the field. I have felt part of this club since I traveled all over the world and was recognized as a Manchester United player. And if you are a Manchester United player, you will forever be a Manchester United player. It's something special. I owe the fans a lot. When you leave such a big club, you lose much more than what they lose. I can't lie – I'm not a Manchester United born fan, but I want everyone to know that part of my heart will always be a pure devil.

& # 39; I want to thank everyone and I hope the supporters have all appreciated that I have always tried every Manchester United fan on & # 39; the best way to represent the field and beyond; I have also tried to involve myself in the community and to be at the level that Manchester United deserves. I hope that when I come back to see the club and see the city, I will love & # 39; fans & # 39; still have.

About how he spends his time at United:

& # 39; In a very positive way. If you have played nearly 200 matches for this club, there is no other way to look back. I have some memories in my mind that I can't forget. Of course, the trophies that we won together like the European trophy we won in Stockholm [2017] – that was special. The FA Cup win against [Crystal] Palace [in 2016], the League Cup also [in 2017] because it is an important trophy, and the Community Shield against Leicester [in 2016]. But generally, I will never forget the way I was treated by the fans.

& # 39; When I played, they always showed me that I was important to them. I have said many times that you have to give everything when you represent this club and you try to put all our effort into it and if you do that your fans will love you and that I felt. Of course you have good and bad moments, you have wins and losses, but I leave feeling, very proud and very calm with myself, because I & # 39; ve done everything and I think the fans know that. & # 39;

Stand-out matches:

& # 39; D & # 39; r are a few. But if I had to pick one or two, I would choose the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm. That victory gave us three trophies for the season and it was a European trophy that is never easy to win. And it also got us back into the Champions League, so it was a very important trophy. I can't forget the victories at Anfield either, I know they're not trophies, but they are trophies [in a different way] for the fans [smiles]. The atmosphere that the fans create every time we play at Anfield, this corner is full of United fans … I couldn't score in a match and celebrate with them, but that's something I always dreamed. & # 39;

Emotions in his last match:

& # 39; It will be difficult because I know I will not continue playing for this club and for the fans. However, everything I lived with her and the connection I have with her is special and I will never forget it. Every time I hear my name, it was great, on Old Trafford and also away, because we & # 39; ve got great fans. The only thing I can say again is that I am very proud and I leave very calmly with myself, because I have tried and given everything to the club and to the fans. & # 39;
