Former Manchester United star Ander Herrera has questioned the priorities of his old club.
The midfielder left Old Trafford at the end of his contract last summer to join French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
Herrera, 30, spent five years at United and suggested that winning football matches was not the No.1 goal there.
He told So Foot: “I was very happy at that incredible club. I am very grateful to the supporters.
“Frankly, I was immensely happy in Manchester, but at the club, there were times when I felt that football was not considered the most important thing.”
When asked whether turning a profit was in fact the most important thing at United, Herrera said: “That does not come out of my mouth.
“I don’t know, but football was not the most important thing in Manchester.
“I do not want to compare, all I know is that here, I feel like I’m breathing football on all sides. And I like it.”
The Spaniard left the club after failing to come to terms over a new deal.
United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has faced criticism from fans, who flew a banner over Old Trafford calling for his sacking during a Premier League match against Liverpool last month.
