West Ham United’s new star signing Javier Hernandez has conceded that he overlooked the decisions of going to Spain and Italy to join the Premier League club this season.
Hernandez just had one year in his Bayer Leverkusen contract and instead of letting him go on free, the Bundesliga club chose to offer the striker to clubs.
The 29-year-old inevitably left Bayer Leverkusen to join West Ham in a £16 million and now uncovered that playing in the best league on the planet was unreasonable to stand up to.
“It was a little bit simple really,” Hernandez said.
“I’m in the best league in the world and West Ham showed me a lot of confidence and trust.”
“West Ham is showing more ambition compared to the last seasons. They want to qualify for Europe, you can see that in the transfer window. That’s why I’m here.”
“They’re one of the most historic teams in England, very ambitious this season and hopefully we can achieve our goals.”
“There were other options – one in Spain and two in Italy. The last two transfers I made on the last day, this time it was more calm and easy. Thankfully I’m where I want to be.”
Hernandez blazed through four seasons in England previously when he played for Manchester United, winning two league titles in 2011 and 2013. But after Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, new administrator Louis van Gaal sent him out on loan to Real Madrid and afterwards sold him to Bayer Leverkusen in the long run.
However, Mourinho as of late talking about the ex-red striker conceded that on the off chance that he had the possibility, he would have never released Chicharito at any cost.
As to remarks, the Mexican all-time top scorer recognized the acclaim of Mourinho and confirmed that it will be exceptional to return to Old Trafford once more.
“I would say ‘thank you’,” Hernandez said of Mourinho.
“It’s always very glad that a trainer like Jose Mourinho that is one of the best in the world speaks very well about me. I had very good moments and a very good four years in my old club.”
“I am going back to my old house in Old Trafford and it’s going to very special,” the ecstatic Hernandez added.
West Ham will begin their season at the Old Trafford as a visiting team and will be aiding this opportunity to improve the season from last season’s eleventh place wrap up.
