On-loan Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez has revealed that it was a lack of faith shown in him by the powers that be at Old Trafford which forced him to seek a loan move to Real Madrid, according to the Daily Mirror.

Chicharito made a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu before the end of the summer transfer window, after Louis van Gaal made it clear that he wasn’t in his plans for the future.

The Dutchman’s decision was the final straw in what has been a difficult few seasons for the Mexico international at United, with Hernandez never really being given adequate time in the spotlight to prove himself.

Along with Danny Welbeck, Shinji Kagawa and Tom Cleverley, Hernandez left Old Trafford to seek guaranteed first-team football, and is now at Madrid until at least next summer.

Speaking publicly for the first time since making his La Liga transfer, the diminutive striker has told how he felt United didn’t believe in him, and credits that as the main reason for his departure.

Lack of belief

"There was no confidence. I remained patient and that’s why I’m here today. It was a very tough year especially because they didn’t believe in me," he is said to have told Claro Sports.

Hernandez has so far made two appearances for Los Blancos, lining up amongst the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Yet, whereas some might be fazed by the idea of competing for a place in a squad which harbours many of the world’s best players, the 26-year-old feels he belongs.

“"I had the chance to meet Ancelotti when he was Chelsea coach. The faith he has in his players motivates me and makes me work hard," he added.

"I really want to make the most of my time here. Any footballer dreams about joining Real Madrid. I know I'm here for a reason. The statistics support me, I'm a good player and a good person."
