Javier Hernandez has appeared to hit out at Robin van Persie, following the Dutchman's alleged criticism of his Manchester United team-mates, reports The Sun.

The Mexican striker took to his Instagram account to post a message that is believed to be directed at Van Persie, after he slammed United's "lousy" performance in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

David Moyes's side went down 2-0 to Olympiacos in Greece, and are at risk of crashing out of Europe's elite club competition at the last-16 stage.

Speaking to journalists after the game, the 30-year-old talisman appeared to lambaste other Manchester United players for not getting the ball to him, and running into areas of the pitch he would've been.

The comments have left a sour taste in the mouths of many at Old Trafford, and Hernandez reacted by posting a subtle message for his fellow frontman.

"Without your teammates you can't be somebody in football, always be thankful," read the message, along with a picture of Hernandez and Red Devils vice-captain Patrice Evra.

Reading between the lines, it seems that Van Persie has rubbed some of United's players up the wrong way with his outspoken interview, and that's the last thing that Moyes needs this season.
