Herrera criticised by Manchester United fans for his marking job on Hazard

Ander Herrera either has the staunch support of Manchester United fans, or he is in the doghouse.

The midfielder has had to settle for a bit-part role under manager Jose Mourinho this season.

In total, the Spaniard has made 38 appearances, including 13 starts in the Premier League.

On Saturday in the FA Cup final at Wembley, Herrera was tasked by Mourinho to keep a close eye on Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

The 28-year-old tried to mark the Belgian out of the game, but he was unsuccessful as the playmaker impressed and even scored the only goal of the game.

Phil Jones made a defensive error by bringing down Hazard in the penalty box during the first half, and the Chelsea star converted to give the Blues’ a 1-0 win.

A handful of United players came under fire on Twitter after the final whistle, and unfortunately for Herrera, he was one of them.

Some criticised the midfielder’s ability, while others hit out at the role he was given to play.
