Ander Herrera, a midfielder for Athletic Club, has opened up about his time with Paris Saint-Germain.
Herrera returned to Spain last summer after leaving the Ligue 1 champions.
He claimed that Messi was treated with the utmost respect and enjoyed a “crazy” standing in the PSG dressing room.
Messi had a difficult connection with the club’s supporters, but Herrera asserts that things were different behind the scenes.
I had a wonderful experience in Paris, Herrera said to ESPN. Fun was had. Because of how well our partners got along and how frequently we got together, we ate, we laughed, and I spent a lot of time with Leo Paredes, Angel Di Maria, and Leo Messi.
“Marco [Verratti] – there isn’t a person in the world who speaks bad of him as a footballer and as a guy. Neymar is also a tremendously joyful boy, a phenomenon.
Leo is incredibly well-respected. Leo is a rare historical figure who has won seven Ballon d’Ors, hence he is respected by everyone. Crazy how he conducts himself and how respectfully he respects each clubgoer.
