Javier Hernandez Responds To Jose Mourinho’s Claim That He Would Have Kept Him At Man United

Judging by his recent Twitter activity, Javier ‘Chicharito‘ Hernandez was keen to let it be known that current Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho’s latest revelations concerning his sale to Bayer Leverkusen were heard loud and clear. 

Mourinho sat down with Gary Lineker for an interview on the BBC’s Premier League show. The three-time Premier League winning manager somewhat surprisingly admitted that he was in disagreement with some of the transfer dealings of Ed Woodward and his predecessor, Louis Van Gaal.

Mourinho states that he would not have bought some of the players Man United did and also wouldn’t have sold some of the players that were told that their futures lay away from Old Trafford before he came to the club last summer. When Lineker pushed the Portuguese on who some of those players he wouldn’t have been sold may be, Mourinho responded:

“I would never have sold [Angel] di Maria, Chicharito [Javier Hernandez], Danny Welbeck. Never. No chance.”

When BBC tweeted out this snippet of the interview, word certainly reached Chicharito and he seemed eager to make his followers aware that he appreciated the words of Mourinho. The Mexican striker not only retweeted the BBC account’s clip of the interview, but also ESPN reporter Sergio Dipp’s tweet of the exact same clip.

Is this the activity of a player who is happy at his current club and seeking to avoid speculation about a possible return to Manchester? Perhaps not. One thing for certain is that the Old Trafford faithful would take “Little Pea” back in a heartbeat after he endeared himself to them in his spell with the club between 2010 and 2015, making 103 appearances, scoring 37 goals.
