Manchester United have endured a miserable season, finishing sixth on the Premier League despite the change of manager.
The red devils are in a battle to keep its squad together, as well as secure some prominent targets in the summer.
Ander Herrera has already confirmed his departure from Old Trafford. But the midfielder has revealed the players are responsible for the team’s failure this season, defending former manager Jose Mourinho in the process.
The 29-year-old however, insists Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to return the red devils to its former glory, as he demands the players rightly “take responsibility” for the season’s failure.
“We have to take responsibility,“ Herrera said.
”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 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 bad things.
“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.”
Speaking on former manager Jose Mourinho, Ander Herrera added: “If we are speaking about this last season, I have huge respect for Jose.”
“He tried everything. The first season with him was quite successful
“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.”
