Louis van Gaal: Javier Hernandez's chances are better now


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says striker Javier Hernandez will enjoy regular first-team football at the club this season.

The Red Devils opted against extending the loan spell of Colombia international Falcao and sold Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce leaving only the Mexican, Wayne Rooney and James Wilson at the disposal of the Dutchman.

But van Gaal says he is not worried about the lack of offensive power in his squad.

"We have Rooney, he can play in as a striker," van Gaal said.

"All media had written he should play there, so I listen and now you put this question so don't know what you want.

"We also have Chicharito and maybe [James] Wilson and maybe there comes a surprise.

"It’s a process. I’m not worried about that position.

"Hernandez is coming on July 25.

"He can prove himself and now Falcao and Van Persie are gone so his chances are better now."
