Hugo Sanchez: Chicharito should not return to Mexico


Former Real Madrid player and Mexico international Hugo Sanchez has claimed Chicharito Hernandez should not return to Mexico this summer after spending last season playing for Los Blancos.

The 27-year-old is set to return to Manchester United after his loan deal with Los Merengues has finished. Yet, Louis Van Gaal has no room in his squad for him, and the Mexican will have to leave.

One of the options is returning to Mexico, but Sanchez has advised him not to do that. “There are many contractual restrictions in Mexico. The best thing to do is to stay away from Mexican football slavery and fly to professional leagues, to be really treated as a professional,” Sanchez wrote on his column for Mexican newspaper El Universal.

Chicharito will have plenty of offers to leave United this summer after his great performances for Los Blancos in the last third of the season. However, some current Red Devils footballers want him to stay.

Spanish international Juan Mata has supported Chicharito during a trip to Mexico. The 27-year-old confessed he wants the Mexican in his team: “I would always have Chicharito in my squad. He’s a striker that guarantees goals, and that is the most important thing in football,” he posted on Twitter.
