The Mexican striker, who scored the all-important winner for Los Blancos against local rivals Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final last week, says the Dutchman doesn’t measure up to Sir Alex Ferguson or his current manager at the Santiago Bernabeu.
“Van Gaal likes routines, timetables are always very rigid. He’s very strict on discipline.” He is quoted in the Spanish publication AS (via Mail Online)
“Ancelotti is more like Sir Alex Ferguson, he’s more liberal. Ancelotti has a bit more contact with us and he is more relaxed.” he added.
Hernandez has also moved to play down suggestions that he is set to end his five-year association with the Red Devils in the summer following van Gaal’s comments that appeared to close the door on a return for the 26-year-old when his loan deal with the La Liga giants comes to an end.
“If he did say that, then that is his opinion and you have to respect that.”
“If not everyone in the world adores Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, imagine what it’s like for those of us who are several steps further down the scale.” he said.
Injures to Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have afforded Hernandez the chance to show his worth in Spain and has taken the chance with both hands, finding the net three times in his last four appearances.
