Ander Herrera remained an important squad player for Manchester United throughout his time at the club.

Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera on Saturday bid farewell to Manchester United after spending five seasons at Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old sent his final goodbye through a video posted to the Premier League side's Twitter account.

"There is red in my heart, I knew it from the first time I played here and in the moment that I started to wear it. A club with thousands of fans that respect and remember all players who give everything," Herrera said.

"I felt special when I heard my name chanted. I felt proud when the fans decided I was part of this incredible history," he added.

Herrera added that whenever he represented United, both in victory or defeat, and even when he was sidelined "I understood what this club means."

"I am going to remember each of the almost 200 matches that I have played with this jersey. Because playing for the greatest club in England has been a true honour," the Spaniard concluded.

Herrera joined Manchester United in 2014 and received the Sir Matt Busby award for the best United player of the year in the 2016-17 season. The midfielder lifted the Europa League title in 2017 with the side, in addition to the EFL Cup triumph in the same year, and the FA Cup win in 2016.

Manchester United are currently at 6th position in the Premier League and will take on Cardiff City in the final game of the season. The Old Trafford outfit is out of the race for a Champions League qualification.
