Javier Hernandez on Manchester United sale: Of course it’s disappointing

Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez insists he holds no grudge against Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

The Mexico international won two Premier Leagues with United and went on to score 59 times in 157 games for the club, but found himself deemed surplus to requirements by the Dutchman and after spending the 2014-15 season on loan with Real Madrid, he then moved to the Bundesliga for £7.3 million in the summer.

However, despite not being given a chance under the current boss, Hernandez appreciated Van Gaal’s forthright manner.

“Of course it’s disappointing when any person in the world doesn’t give you 100 per cent confidence.”

“I said thank you to him to his face and I still do now as he was always honest. He told me that if I get a good offer and the club like then he will be happy to let me go,” he told BBC Sport.
