Manchester United’s ‘oldest guys with the most experience’ inspired the Red Devils to a remarkable comeback and victory to halt Manchester City’s Premier League title celebrations on Saturday, according to midfielder Ander Herrera.
Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan had given City a first half lead at the Etihad before United came roaring back in the second period thanks to a brace from Paul Pogba and Chris Smalling’s winner, leading to wild celebrations from the away end as the visitors came back to win 3-2.
“Of course, the oldest guys with the most experience,” said Herrera when asked which players lead the dressing room charge, via the
Daily Mail .
“Ash (Ashley Young) and Mike (Michael Carrick) were in the dressing room.
“They have the power in their words, but everyone was talking. We didn’t talk too much about tactics, just about our pride. Our pride on the pitch and that our fans were going to have a difficult night if we got beaten. We did it for them.
“I was feeling sorry for them in the first half but this is Manchester United and no one should ever underestimate us. This is one of the best and most emotional games in my United career.”
