MANCHESTER UNITED fans blasted former star Ander Herrera for diving after the Paris Saint-Germain tweeted he wished there were fans at Wednesday’s clash.

The Spanish midfielder’s post backfired spectacularly as supporters were incensed at his theatrics that saw Fred shown a second yellow card in the second half.

It was a winning return at the Theatre of Dreams for Herrera – who left to join PSG in 2019 – as Les Parisiens ran out 3-1 winners.

The 29-year-old came on as a substitute in the second period, and made an instant impact after he drew a foul from his ex-team-mate.

And his antics didn’t sit well with fans after Herrera took to social media following the match.

He tweeted: “It has been so special to come back to Manchester, so many great memories in this stadium.

“I wish this moment could have been with the fans I shared 5 years with.”

Not happy with his actions, one fan replied: “But you had to dive on that Fred tackle like he had pinned ur (sic) leg down. Not too good at all against a team you said its special to you.”

Another messaged: “Your show was great since you are learning very well from the great actor Neymar!”

A third added: “Hope you are alright after that challenge from Fred fella you looked in so much pain.

“Those 8 rolls on the floor really had me concerned.”

Meanwhile one simply stated: “Hollywood acting that tonight fella.”

However there were some supporters that were happy to see him back, as one user posted: “You coming on changed the game against us tonight.

“Yet again we know what we lost. You gave your best here and we will always love you.”

Another wrote: “We love you Ander.”


Herrera’s former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also left disappointed with the Spaniard following Fred’s tackle on him.

He said: “The second yellow card was nowhere near a foul.

“Ander [Herrera] knows that. He definitely knows.”
