 Exclusive: Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe upstaged by Man United flop Ander Herrera as PSG struggle against Club Brugge


Ander Herrera may well have struggled at Manchester United, but he is currently Paris Saint-Germain’s top scorer after helping the Ligue 1 side claim a 1-1 draw against Club Brugges.

Despite having Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylain Mbappe at his disposal, Mauricio Pochettino had defensive midfielder Herrera to thank for his fourth goal of the season.

Messi was making his first start since moving from Barcelona, but despite hitting the bar, he was marshalled well by the hosts’ defence as he was then given a card.

Hans Vanaken grabbed a deserved equaliser for Brugges, who pressed aggressively for the entirety of the game.

Mbappe lasted just 51 minutes after picking up an injury, with 34-year-old Messi struggling to compensate for the France international’s absence and Neymar’s anonymity.

The Samba star failed to have an impact on the game as Phillippe Clement’s side actually ended the game with more shots (16) than their prestigious Parisian counterparts (9).
