Manchester United star told to leave Old Trafford by manager

by Sam Peoples

Javier Hernandez should leave Manchester United this summer according to his national team manager.

Mexico boss Miguel Herrera, who has included the 25-year-old in his squad for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, said the striker should consider a move away from United to find more playing time.

Hernandez was largely overlooked by David Moyes and faces a new challenge under incoming manager Louis van Gaal.

“In the case of ‘Chicharito’, I believe it’d be in his interest to leave so he is taken into consideration to play,” Herrera said.

Hernandez scored nine goals in all competitions last season but with Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney or Danny Welbeck generally preferred, the Mexican made just six league starts.

The past week saw the striker linked with a move to Inter Milan and he told ‘Record’ that he would consider his future after the World Cup.

“There is obviously uncertainty [regarding my future], but right now I am fully focused on the national team,” Chicharito said.

“My agent and my staff help me work it all out.

“My future could be decided tomorrow, a little after or within three months. (I could) stay there (in Manchester), I really don’t know.”

As it stands right now, Hernandez’ future at United looks bleak and his manager advising him to leave doesn’t do it any favours either, so there may well be some movement from Chicharito and his representatives before the World Cup.
