Hernandez: Manchester United didn’t believe in me

Javier Hernandez has said Manchester United did not believe in him whilst at Old Trafford, and that he is delighted to have since moved to Real Madrid, reports the Daily Mirror.

The Mexican forward completed a deadline day switch to the Bernabeu, having failed to break up the first choice partnership of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie.

United also added a new striker in the form of Radamel Falcao on deadline day, and Hernandez admits he is happy to be away from Old Trafford.

“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.

“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.”
