Ander Herrera Made Some Bizarre Claims After Manchester City Beat PSG

Ander Herrera incredibly claimed that PSG were the better team on Tuesday night against Manchester City, and that the ref had told one player to 'f**k off.'


City went into the Champions League semi final second leg in Manchester already leading 2-1 and knowing PSG needed two goals to go through.

Without Kylian Mbappe playing, the French side didn't show much going forward throughout 90 minutes, with Marquinhos' first half header that hit the top of the bar the closest they came.


Mauricio Pochettino's side didn't even have a shot on target from the 28th minute of the first leg to the end of the second leg, and City ran out 2-0 winners in Manchester.

To most people that would be enough to suggest that City, who did in fairness need to defend with some great blocks, were the better team, but not for Herrera.

"We were the better side for 70 minutes. We tried it all. We attacked, we tried to attack," the former Manchester United midfielder told RMC after the game.

"We are going to leave here with our heads held high."

Despite the 31-year-old's suggestion they could hold their heads high, the PSG players seemed to actually lose their heads towards the end of the game, as they had in Paris six days prior.

Angel di Maria got himself sent off in the 69th minute, for a less than nice kick out at Fernandinho, and they were quite lucky not to have more players sent off.

However Herrera actually complained about the referees actions, claiming that the official had told teammate Leandro Paredes to 'f*ck off.'


"The referee tonight said f**k off to Leandro Paredes. If we say that we get a 3 or 4 match ban."

He wasn't the only PSG midfielder to complain about the ref either. Marco Verratti backed up his teammates adding, "The referee also told me 'f*** you' twice. For them it's normal, if you say that it's ten matches [ban]. I talk a lot to the referee but I don't say that."


Despite an excellent start in the first leg, it's unquestionable that the better team have made it through to the final on May 29th.

A few swear words from the referee wouldn't have changed anything either...
