Tottenham legend Glen Hoddle has stated that Manchester United should not have sold striker Javier Hernandez. Hoddle was surprised that premier league rivals Arsenal and Tottenham didn’t make a bid to sign the Mexican international.
United manager Louis Van Gaal opted to sell the striker after giving up hope on his chances to impress. Hernandez missed series of chances in United champions league qualifier against Club Brugge and also missed a penalty, leaving Van Gaal with the obvious choice of looking for alternatives elsewhere.
With Wayne Rooney struggling for form and young star James Wilson not given a chance in the first team, United’s major source for goals lie in the shoulder of young star Anthony Martial who was signed from Monaco. One wonder what might have been if Javier Hernandez still remained at Old Trafford,maybe we would have seen a deadly combination between Martial and Chicharito with Rooney having cameo appearances
Arsenal already bought Danny Welbeck from United last season and Van Gaal would have been reluctant to sell to any premier league rival. Spurs were more interested in signing West bromwich Albion’s Berahino who looked set to join them before the deal failed to see d light of day.
Hernandez scored 37 goals in 103 appearances for the Red Devils before joining German side Bayern Leverkusen in the last transfer window.
