The Copa América starts this Friday and Chicharito Hernández will be the star in the Mexican national team. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player has done a really good season in Bayer Leverkusen and he has talked about his experience at Chamartín to the magazine Four Four Two.
“If I had more opportunities in Manchester United or Real Madrid I could have been the star”, he said to the magazine. “I’ve never had the chance to play 20 games in a row”.
Chicharito Hernández didn’t have indeed a lot of opportunities with Ancelotti. Only in a few games he was able to show his skills and he scored a decisive goal against Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals.
“At Real Madrid I started 12 games and I scored 9 goals. At Leverkusen, I started 37 games and I scored 26 goals. The difference is that at Leverkusen they want me on the pitch. The others didn’t”, finished Chicharito.
