Ander Herrera denies claims he intentionally spat on Man City crest during derby match

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has denied intentionally spitting on the Manchester City crest at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

United were trailing 2-0 at half-time and as both sets of players made their way towards the dressing room, Herrera appeared to spit on the large City badge which adorns the area between the technical area and the tunnel.

City officials reportedly believe it was deliberate while a United spokesperson has denied the act on behalf of the Spaniard.

"Ander has seen footage of the incident and is mortified at any suggestion his actions were deliberate," it reads.

"It was entirely accidental and there was no intent whatsoever."

Herrera was booked in the first half for a foul on Fernandinho but came to the fore in the second half, assisting Paul Pogba’s first goal with his chest.

That goal helped spark an unlikely comeback as Pogba headed home an equaliser before Chris Smalling atoned for an earlier error by bagging the match-winning goal.

The Football Association will not be investigating the alleged spitting incident any further.

City, however, face an automatic £25,000 fine for failing to control their players after six of them received yellow cards.
