Manchester United Star Told To Leave Old Trafford And Join Juventus By National Team Manager

Herrera says Hernandez needs to find a new club in order to progress.

Mexico national team manager Miguel Herrera has told striker Javier Hernandez that he needs to leave Manchester United this summer.

The 46-year-old says that the man known as ‘Chicharito’ should consider joining Juventus as Massimiliano Allegri wants the forward more than Louis van Gaal does currently.

“I think [Chicharito] needs to leave,” Herrera told ESPN.

“I think [Juventus] would be a good option for him. When a coach doesn’t want you – when you have your best experience, your best moment with them, and now the coach that wanted you is no longer there – it’s time to move.”

Hernandez joined the Red Devils in the summer of 2010 for £6m from Guadalajara in his home nation.

Since then the 26-year-old has scored 59 goals in 152 appearances for the club in all competitions, but in recent times has found game time hard to come by and last season started just six Premier League matches.

This lack of opportunities also saw Hernandez lose his place in Herrera’s starting XI at the 2014 World Cup and things don’t look set to change at Old Trafford any time soon, with newly appointed captain Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck all ahead of the Mexican in the pecking order.
