Man United fans slam Ander Herrera after Basel defeat

Manchester United failed to get the draw they needed to advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League after they were beaten 1-0 by FC Basel on Wednesday night, and Red Devils fans weren’t impressed with Ander Herrera’s performance.

Jose Mourinho’s men knew that a point would be enough to guarantee their spot in the last 16, and they looked set to get it before Michael Lang’s 89th-minute goal for the hosts.

Anything less than a seven-goal defeat to CSKA Moscow on the final matchday will still be enough to see them progress, but the likes of Herrera may fear for their places in the team following the showing in Switzerland.

The Spaniard lined up alongside Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini in the middle of the park, but he struggled with his passing and failed to make a real impact on the game.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on his display via social media, and while one said he is “a shadow of his former self”, another said it’s the “worst I’ve ever seen Herrera play”.
