Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has pointed accusing fingers at the manager Louis Van Gaal and has questioned his decision to sell the Mexican striker Javier Hernandez in the summer transfer window.
The striker who was sold to the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen was a fan favourite in his time at Old Trafford and was the team savior many times as he scored a lot of very important goals under Sir Alex Ferguson either as a substitute or as a starter. He was known as the “super sub” for Manchester United and always made his presence known on the pitch anytime he came on.
The Mexican striker was however loaned off to the La Liga with Real Madrid after being seen as surplus to requirements at Old Trafford but he went to Madrid and also impressed during his loan spell and even scored a late winner against Atletico Madrid to help Real Madrid again.
Already, this season after just joining Leverkusen in the summer transfer window, Hernandez has scored 10 goals in 14 matches for his side so far this season and is already being targeted by a number of top clubs.
Meanwhile Manchester United have suffered terribly in front of goal and they have had a tough time finding the net and De Gea is baffled with Van Gaal’s decision to sell the 27 year old striker in the summer transfer window.
He said, “These are decisions for the coach. But in my team he would always play. He was an undisputed starter before and player of the year at United. He can get you 20, 30 goals a season. I would like a lot to play with him again, hopefully it can happen.”
Whether or not Van Gaal decides to respond to these comments or not, there is some truth in De Gea’s comments and the team really does need Hernandez at the moment. It remains to be seen what will happen by January.
