Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez called Manchester United Boss Louis Van Gaal a “scoundrel.” Louis Van Gaal’s harsh treatment of Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has irked Sanchez. Van Gaal decided to release Hernandez following the striker’s horror show in the Champion’s League qualifying encounter against Belgian outfit FC Brugge.
Hernandez blew a penalty and fluffed few close opportunities. United Boss’s reaction was caught on camera on a close view. Though the Premiership giants went on to win the match 4-0, Hernandez had to bear the brunt of the Dutchman’s anger. The Mexican international was traded off to Bayer Leverkusen within a week in a £7.3 million deal.
Van Gaal’s reaction has drawn the wrath of Real Madrid legend Hugo Sanchez. The former Mexican International blasted Van Gaal in Futbol Picant, “Van Gaal made a bad decision – and it’s not one he’s done for the first time, he’s done it 50,000 times.

“I’ve coached and a coach cannot do that to their own player. I’d go out and applaud him and tell him to trust in himself. But that look he gave Giggs. What a scoundrel.
“It was a bad game for Chicharito but any player in the world can do that. Van Gaal is a scoundrel; hopefully those in England realise he is a bad person and treats his players poorly.
“He should be professional. The players deserve professional and humane treatment.”
Hernandez, on the other side, is confident about resurrecting his career at Leverkusen.
I want to go back to feeling important and happy. I want to find happiness,” he said.
