Mexican Soccer Legend Thinks Chicharito Deserves Better From Real Madrid!
It’s no secret that Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez has found himself in a tough spot at Real Madrid. He’s a world class player in a sea of other world class players, and because he’s not quite the best in the world has found himself firmly on the bench instead of cementing his legacy.
Hugo Sanchez who is a Mexican legend and former Los Blancos player himself is concerned by the situation, telling the Spanish Cadena Cope publication that the Mexican striker deserves better.
He says the 26 year old is a great player and that’s why Madrid first agreed to take him on loan from Manchester United, but there is now a lot of anxiety from his home country about the lack of game time he’s been getting, and how that might be harming his overall form and ability.
Sanchez suggested that if he only got more minutes he could prove himself and succeed, but ultimately it is Carlo Ancelotti who makes the final call.
Ancelotti himself has always spoken highly of Chicharito, praising his determination and professionalism in training. However the fact remains that other forwards are simply better and Ancelotti sees Chicharito as part of the wider strategy, not as a first team player.
It’s now all but confirmed that he’ll be on his way out during the Summer transfer window and will be looking for clubs that will see him as an indispensable first team player, which fortunately is a lot.
While he’s already turned down “feelers” from Major League Soccer in the United States, most likely because they do not play a high enough level of football over there, a lot of UK Premiership sides have shown interest, and is most likely where he’ll end up.
The likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Southampton, have all let it be known that they’d be willing to bid.
Since he’ll still have some months left on his deal with Manchester United when his loan expires in the Summer, the most likely scenario is that they put him up on the transfer market right away to ensure they can make some money.
