Ex-Arsenal striker Vela: Chicharito may need to leave Man Utd

Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela suggests fellow Mexican attacker Javier Hernandez may need to think about departing Manchester United.

Chicharito has been used sparingly by David Moyes this season which suggests to Vela, who struggled to find his best during his time with Arsenal, that he might have to move on in order to receive regular game time.

"Javier is my good friend and I hope he gets lots of chances this season at Manchester United," he told The People.

"He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach.

"If he plays regularly, he will score, so I don't totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

"If he doesn't play regularly he will need to think about leaving. You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs but, if he is not given the chance, there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him."
