Insult has been added to injury after one of their players out on loan said he was not given enough trust and confidence at the club.
According to The Mirror, Javier Hernandez insists that his loan move was prompted after the club didn’t show any belief in him.
This led to a deadline day loan switch to Real Madrid for the Mexican international after a frustrating few seasons in Manchester where he always seemed to be out of favour.
Hernandez has launched a critical attack on Manchester United claiming they: “Didn’t believe in him”.
Hernandez burst on to the scene under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2010 netting 13 goals in his first full season in English football.
But the 26-year-old ended up falling further and further away from the starting line-up and after only six starts last season, he was keen to join Madrid.
And, speaking following his first appearance for Los Blancos in the Champions League, this week, Hernandez has revealed he decided to leave when he realised United didn’t have enough faith in 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,” he told Claro Sports.
Hernandez couldn’t be happier in the Spanish capital and feels he now has the chance to prove why he deserves to be there.
“I had the chance to meet Ancelotti when he was Chelsea coach. The faith he has in his players motivates me and makes me work hard,” he added.
“I really want to make the most of my time here. Any footballer dreams about joining Real Madrid. I know I’m here for a reason. The statistics support me, I’m a good player and a good person.”
