Javier Hernandez Has Opened Up About David Moyes In Honest, But Brutal Interview

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has unloaded on David Moyes' brief stint in charge of the 'Red Devils'.

Hernandez, often referred to as Chicharito, was a part of Moyes squad during his seven month reign in charge at Old Trafford.

Moyes was drafted in to follow in the footsteps of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson and it didn't work out.

The 31-year-old pointed to the Moyes' stubborn nature as a reason he failed to live up to 'The Chosen One' moniker.

"He was so stubborn and he didn't have that adaptability and that growth acceptance. You need to grow to be in United," the Mexican told former teammate Rio Ferdinand on The Locker Room.

"To be honest, we didn't have any thing personal - Moyes and myself - but it was a mistake that they took him.

"It was a mistake. That was the first mistake that it's still haunting - not because of him, he's not a bad manager, but they thought they were going to take the replacement of the boss, of Sir Alex so quick. It's impossible!

"Not until now. Even Guardiola and Klopp and Mourinho are not at the level of Sir Alex yet. They're on the way trying to get there. Or Cruyff, those kinds of managers.

"They're not there but they're trying to achieve that. 'That changed some United careers that could have been better. Rafael, myself, [Danny] Welbeck, Fabio, too - a lot of players that we need to go away to play."

Ferdinand asked if United moved some of those players on too early, to which current LA Galaxy man Hernandez replied: "Yeah, definitely.

"Look, another thing. They brought David Moyes. It's not about being a good or a bad coach or his ideas - I'm not going to question that.

"The problem is, I don't understand how it's possible that you're not that humble or not clever enough to maintain or at least half of what you're succeeding, the way he was doing it because he's the greatest of all time.

"That's why he lasted the seven months he lasted."
