MANCHESTER UNITED fans revealed their love for Ander Herrera after he swore live on air following Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League final loss to Bayern Munich.
The Spaniard was terrific on the night but ultimately ended up on the losing team as Kingsley Coman grabbed the all-important winning goal in the second half.
Herrera, who spent five years at the Red Devils before moving to PSG in 2019, was obviously bitterly disappointed at the full-time whistle.

And he couldn’t hide his frustrations when asked how it felt playing inside empty stadiums.
The 31-year-old responded: “It’s s***, horrible.
“For me, fans are the key in this sport, they’re the most important thing in football.
“Football without fans is nothing.
“I hope all the people realise football is for fans. The business had to continue because it’s a big business.
“For people suffering it’s been a good escape for them to watch football.”
United fans were loving his post-match interview honesty and took to social media to reveal their respect for the Spaniard.
One said: “I love Ander Herrera.”
Another added: “You’re not a United fans if you don’t love Ander.”
A third revealed: “United should never have sold this guy, you have to love him.”
Herrera offered a brutal assessment of his side’s performance, claiming “we knew how to lose a game”.
He added: “The conclusion that I have right now is that if you miss clear chances and you play against another top side, they will probably kill you. As they did.
“I think we did everything to win the game, we created two or three big chances in the first half and we didn’t score.
“Even after they scored we created two or three chances.
“They knew how to win, and we also knew how to lose the game.
“When you lose, you are f***** for a couple of days, but when you lose the way we lost, you can take a lot of things to make you stronger.”
