- Ander Herrera aims a dig at his former club Manchester United
- The attacker accused of United of giving football less priority
- Herrera admitted that life is much more different at his present club PSG
Paris Saint Germain midfielder Ander Herrera has aimed a dig at Manchester United after accusing them of not prioritising football at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old ended his five year reign with the Red Devils this summer after his contract at the Premier League side expired.
He however joined the Parisians as a free agent and has registered just one assist in nine appearances for the club so far this campaign.

While speaking with French magazine So Foot, Herrera revealed the emphasis PSG put on football showed something of a culture shock from his time at United.
"I cannot talk about what was happening in previous seasons because I was not there, but since I'm here, what I see is that I'm in a club that think only and exclusively about football,' Herrera said.
"And I say it sincerely because sometimes, seen from the outside, PSG can have a glamorous side that can irritate some. But here we sweat, we train, we work!
"When I arrive at the training centre, the physios, podiatrist and physical trainer are already at work... Football, football, football.'
Asked if that was not the case with United, the midfielder added: "I was happy at that incredible club. I am very grateful to the supporters.
"Frankly, I was immensely happy in Manchester, but at the club, there were times when I felt that football was not considered the most important thing."
When asked whether money was the top priority, Herrera said: "That does not come out of my mouth.
"I don't know, but football was not the most important thing in Manchester. I do not want to compare, all I know is that here, I feel like I'm breathing football on all sides. And I like it."
United are one of the most richest clubs in the world at the moment but are also one of the most struggling teams after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Man United have reportedly told manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sell six players to save their season from crumbling.
The Red Devils are 18 points of the pace after 11 Premier League games and it has been their worst start to a new season in 30 years.
ESPN FC pundit Craig Burley has named seven players he believes will not be useful in Solskjaer's squad for the rest of the season.
