Javier Hernandez felt that he needed to leave Manchester United in order to further his career, the Daily Star reports.
The Mexican front man joined Real Madrid on a season long loan in the final day of the transfer window.
Hernandez had spent much of his time at United on the bench, often coming on as a late substitute and scoring crucial goals for the Red Devils.
However, with Radamel Falcao arriving at Old Trafford on the final day of the transfer window, Hernandez was set to fall even further down the pecking order if he remained in Manchester.
The 26-year-old feels that a change of clubs is good for his career and he has vowed to score plenty of goals during his time with Los Blancos.
“I’m here in Real Madrid. This change is something I really needed,” Hernandez said.
“And what better place than the world’s best club, who have given me the opportunity, have believed in me? I want to make the most of that.
“I’m a centre forward, who likes to move and give my teammates options. Goals speak for themselves; they are the fruit of a team’s work.”
Hernandez will almost certainly not start many games for Madrid with the likes of Karim Benzema in front of him in the pecking order however, if he can continue his knack of scoring crucial goals from the bench, he will be a real asset to Los Blancos.
