Manchester United Javier Hernandez admits he didn't feel important at Real Madrid last season but was delighted to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 27-year-old returned to Old Trafford after the Spanish giants opted against extending his loan spell.
He is expected to leave the Red Devils with Serie A side Internazionale ready to make an official approach.
"Cristiano is a great player," he told Univision.
"There are no words to describe him. He is a clear example that hard work pays off.
"The season at Real Madrid was one full of learning. It helped me find myself again as a player.
"I was on the bench a lot, which was frustrating because I was not important.
"The goal against Atletico was a big relief because it was a difficult year and I had so few opportunities."
