Departing midfielder Ander Herrera has taken responsibility for Manchester United’s struggling form in recent seasons and insisted previous manager José Mourinho tried ‘everything’ to bring success to Old Trafford.

Herrera, who will leave United this summer when his contract expires, is set to join Paris Saint-Germain but the Spaniard is not shying away from blaming himself and the others in the dressing room for the Red Devils’ failures.

Speaking to the official club website, the 29-year-old said: “We have to take responsibility, all of us. It’s not fair to blame others when you have a bad season, 75 per cent is the responsibility of the players.”

“It’s very easy when a manager is sacked to blame someone else, but it’s 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 bad things. We have done some good things but, for Manchester United, it’s not enough. Probably 14 teams, if they are sixth, they are happy, but Manchester United cannot be happy.”

“If we are speaking about this last season, I have huge respect for José, he tried everything. The first season with him was quite successful,” United’s number 21 added.

“Then we were second and we had a lot of expectation for this season but it didn’t work. Not only because of him but because I repeat, every player has responsibility.”
