Real Madrid did not let me shine:Chicharito

Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez says that his lack of minutes when he spent last season with Real Madrid is to blame for his lack of success.

Hernandez scored 26 goals for Bayer Leverkusen this campaign, as he became the undisputed starter in the striker position.

“Had I had the chance of playing 20 matches in a row for Manchester United and Real Madrid maybe I could’ve been the star, but we will never know,” said Hernandez.

“My numbers are there, I started 80 matches for United and scored 65 goals, while in Madrid I just started 12 games and managed to score 9 goals, so the only difference is that I had enough minutes to prove my worth in Leverkusen,” he added.

Hernandez is under contract with Leverkusen until the summer of 2018 – as he joined the team last summer for 12 million Euros.
