Hernandez lays into the Red Devils for not believing in him.
Having fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United this summer striker Javier Hernandez was eventually loaned out to Real Madrid.
The Mexico international found himself behind captain Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck (who has also since left the club for Arsenal) for a place in the starting XI.
As a result Los Blancos seized the chance and snapped up the man known as ‘Chicharito’, who has now slammed the Red Devils for the way they treated him.
“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,” the forward told Claro Sports.
Hernandez made his debut for Madrid on Saturday, scoring in the 8-2 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga and it doesn’t look as if the 26-year-old will ever return to United.
Despite earning a reputation as something of a super-sub during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era at Old Trafford, under David Moyes and latterly Louis van Gaal the Mexican was constantly overlooked.
Hernandez and Welbeck have both since been replaced by Radamel Falcao, who joined van Gaal’s squad on transfer deadline day in a loan switch from AS Monaco.
