Chicharito Not Amused At Being Left Out In The Cold At Old Trafford

Javier-HernandezManchester United and Mexico striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has went public with his disappointment over how he was treated by former United manager David Moyes last season.

The 26-year-old only made six starts in the Premier League last year and had to settle for 18 appearances from substitutes bench as Moyes preferred to use Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck ahead of him.

Hernandez fell out of favour in the starting XI for Mexico as a result of his reduced playing time at club level, with the striker reduced to substitute appearances and scoring just once before Mexico were knocked out in controversial circumstances by Netherlands.

Speaking ahead of the Holland game Hernandez told reporters:

“This whole year has been very tough.

“Players need confidence more than anything else and I’ve been very short of it.

“Very few people have shown faith in me over this past year.”

There is no indication that new United boss Louis van Gaal feels any different about Hernandez than Moyes does and that is why I expect the Mexican striker to be sold this summer.
