Madrid admit ‘Chicharito’ mistake

Real Madrid have admitted it was a mistake in bringing Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez in on loan from Manchester United.

The Mexican international joined Los Blancos before the start of this season and, according to Cadena COPE journalist Melchor Ruiz, a source close to the club has told him they regret having contracted the player.

“They acknowledge they could have been wrong about him after what he has contributed,” Ruiz told the ‘El Partido de las 12’ programme, reports La Prensa.

“It has not been good for the player how the season has gone. They also believe it wasn’t necessary to sign him as he has not had many minutes.

“With regards to next season, there is no intention of bringing in a replacement. They think of Jese Rodriguez as first change for the attack, although at the moment he is far from at his best to play the role ‘Chicharito’ is occupying.”
