Javier Hernandez makes jibe at Louis van Gaal after Man Utd exit
Javier Hernandez has made a jibe at Louis van Gaal after departing Manchester United for Bayer Leverkusen in a deal worth about £7m.
The striker completed his move to the German side where he agreed a three year deal until 2018 as he looks to kick start his flagging career.
United boss Louis van Gaal has told the Mexico international, 27, he was surplus to requirements after failing to be impressed by the Mexican since his return from loan with Real Madrid.
The Dutch boss was scathing about the forward last season after dismissing claims he should have been impressed by the striker’s goal spree late last season for Real.
He seemingly adopted a change of stance in pre-season but Hernandez has again looked on borrowed time in the last few weeks, with his missed penalty and another golden chance against Club Brugge proving to be the final nail in the coffin.
West Ham United and Tottenham had also been reportedly keen on landing Chicharito, but the player favoured Champions League football.
And he has made it clear he was made to feel unwanted by Van Gaal. “I want to go back to feeling important and happy. I want to find happiness,” he said as quoted by the Express.
“Bayer made me feel important and loved and coming here was not a difficult decision to make. They made me feel wanted.
“I want to help and achieve important things. I have felt very loved. I hope to accomplish things in my head and in my heart.”
