Louis Van Gaal virtually emptied Manchester United’s attacking talent from the locker room at the start of this season when he shipped out Radamel Falcao, Robin Van Persie and Javier Hernandez from the team. One decision that has surprised the current goal keeper David De Gea was Hernandez’s exit.

De Gea feels that he should have been retained and he is good enough to play in any team in the world. According to De Gea, he would have kept him in the team as he is capable of scoring 20-30 goals a season. Speaking on the International duty, De Gea said

“Hernandez would always play in my team, he’s an undisputed starter. He’ll get 20-30 goals a season. I want to play with him again.”

“He is a very good friend, we last spoke two or three days ago, we are in touch a lot. He does well in whatever team he is at.”

“He has scored 8 or 9 goals in very few games. He is doing well at Leverkusen and everyone knows Chicharito is a goal scorer.”

I am sure Van Gaal feels that way now after seeing his strikers play below par this season, in particular Wayne Rooney. Had Chicharito been at the club, the movement and chance creation would have been on the higher side for Manchester United.
