And Herrera revealed it's given him a new lease of life as the Ligue 1 giants focus purely on football - and aren't distracted by the business side of things.

The two-cap Spain international admitted he was happy at United, but confessed football didn't appear to be the board's No1 priority.

Herrera told French magazine 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 if he was referring to the business of football, Herrera was edgy in his reply, saying: “I will not say it.

"That does not come out of my mouth. I don’t know, but football was not the most important thing in Manchester."

Herrera said it is a world away from his current club PSG - who are 100 per cent committed to the sport.

The Spaniard added: “I cannot talk about what was happening in previous seasons because I was not there.

"But since I’m here, what I see is that I’m in a club that thinks only and exclusively about football.

“And I say it sincerely because sometimes, seen from the outside, PSG can have a glamorous side that can irritate some.

"But here, we sweat, we train, we work.

“When I arrive at the training centre, the physios, podiatrist and physical trainer are already at work.

"Football, football, football... [sporting director] Leonardo [Araujo] is there every day.

"I do not want to compare [United to PSG]. All I know is that here, I feel like I’m breathing football on all sides. And I like it."
