Hernandez: Van Gaal told me I had a 1% chance of playing for Manchester United

Javier Hernandez admits he did not want to leave Manchester United in the summer but claims his exit was sealed after Louis van Gaal told him he had just a “one percent chance” of playing.

The story is too old to be commented.

van gaal got rid of every good player united had, the team has no pace in it whatsoever. young is absolutely hopeless, valencia is playing defense. midfield is average at best and not anywhere near title winning. if you watch the matches this is where all of united games are lost. high pressure in the midfield and united crumble.

i liked hernandez and thought him and rooney would make a great strike partnership. instead he was let go, falcao brought in at a ridiculous price with a ridiculous wage and was pathetic to say the least.

after realizing he has no proper strikers, he spends crazy money on martial. but for the price he paid, not worth it.
hernandez has something like 15 goals this season already, i dont think united as a team has that many.

i hope van gaal leaves soon. he spent/wasted 250 million already and his performances isnt any better than moyes, and we gave him a tough time. if LVG is there any longer, spending more money, united will be the new liverpool. struggle to finish top 4 consistently, and struggle to bring in top class players and winning the FA cup is considered the highlight of the season.

Nonsense, the English media will chalk up Chicharito's goals to the 'inferiority' of the Bundesliga. Clearly he was not up to snuff to play in England /s

He wasn't though. Chicarito was given chances and it didn't work out. He didn't do much at Madrid either, barring the odd goal here and there. He's found a good level with Leverkusen.

His chances came too few and far between. any striker given as few chances like that would struggle. same at madrid. however i always said when he plays regular football, like now, he will shine. the guy has a neck for finishing. he is also close to becoming mexicos all time top scorer if im not mistaken.

only LVG will get rid of class players.

Van Gaal Destroyed Barcelona and now he's destroying ManU in the same way
The difference is he didn't brings a lot of Dutch Players with him to ManU

But I like what he's doing to Valdez
That f#*%@ deserves that
