Manchester United Football Club made a bold decision to let Chicharito leave Old Trafford over the summer, and many feel that hasn’t been justified, as the now Bayer Leverkusen striker is scoring goals for fun this term – nineteen to be precise.
The Mexican hit-man has had his say on the situation at Manchester United, and says there is no hard feelings between him and Louis van Gaal.
“It’s part of the game. Only 11 players can start. It was nothing personal but every coach has his own plan,” Chicharito said.
“When people criticise van Gaal, that’s their opinion. I’m pleased that people think I could have stayed there longer. I had four great years in Manchester. I was champion twice.”
At the end of the day, in Louis van Gaal’s system only one striker can be played, and it seems silly letting Javier Hernandez sit and rot on the bench.
Yes, its great that he is scoring for fun over in Germany at the moment, but lets not pretend that we all didn’t want him to leave Old Trafford over the summer, because his form over the last twelve months at United clearly wasn’t good enough.
