Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez believes he would “probably have been the star” at former clubs Manchester United and Real Madrid if he was given the chance.
“If I’d had more chances at United or Real, I’d probably have been ‘the star’ there as well – we’ll never know,” he told Four Four Two.
“I didn’t have the chance. I never had the chance to play 20 games in a row so people could say, ‘He’s a good player who should stay’ or, ‘He can’t be the star – he’s not a good player’.
“Ask the United fans. The numbers are there. The difference is that Leverkusen want me on the pitch. The others didn’t.”
