Javier Hernandez happy to be out of Old Trafford.
The chances of Javier Hernandez returning to Manchester United at the end of the season when his loan spell at Real Madrid ends look remote, with the Mexican international striker having slammed the Red Devils for having a lack of faith in his ability, report the Express.
Hernandez has fallen rapidly out of favour at Old Trafford during the last couple of season after a lightning start following his arrival from Mexican Primeira Liga side Guadalajara, with criticism over the 26 year-old’s first touch and general all-round game beginning to define him more than his impressive moments inside the area and crisp finishing.
A summer exit always looked likely and finally materialised late in the transfer window when European champions Real Madrid opted to take Hernandez on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent move, something that Hernandez’s latest comments clearly indicated that he is hoping for.
The player, also known as Chicharito, bemoaned a lack of confidence and faith showed in him by United:
“There was no confidence. I remained patient and that’s why I’m here today. It was a very tough year especially because they didn’t believe in me.”
Hernandez’s reference to having a “tough year” is particularly telling and seems to indicate that the player’s stock fell at Old Trafford as soon as Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager who signed him from Mexico, stepped down at the end of the 2012/13 season, allowing David Moyes to take over – a manager who seemed less willing to utilise Hernandez.
