Barcelona star Gerard Pique Tweets Ander Herrera praising Manchester United

The former Manchester United player was responding to a complimentary Tweet from Ander Herrera.

Ander Herrera had an interesting conversation with a fellow Spaniard on Twitter yesterday, one who happens to be a former Manchester United player.

Gerard Pique was the player in question. The Barcelona and Spain star was at United between 2004 and 2008 before returning to his hometown club of Barcelona.

When he is not playing for Barcelona or spending time with his international superstar girlfriend Shakira he has decided to start up his own football management app, Golden Manager.

Herrera seems to be one player on the new game and he sent Pique his congratulations yesterday. In response Pique thanked the player and also wished him well during current time at Manchester United - during which he lathered praise on his former employers:

Herrera joined United for a £28.85 million fee in the summer after a year long pursuit of the Athletic Bilbao midfielder. His first season at the club has been up and down. He has suffered some injuries during his time at the club and has played just 12 games in the Premier League for the club this season starting just six of those fixtures.
