“Just by having him there, on the bench, incomes that cash and never taking part in and scoring, different gamers begin to assume: ‘well if this player’s on £145,000 a week, then I ought to be on that or extra’ and so it’s nearly turning into a little bit poisonous not directly by having him there.
“And I agree we haven’t performed to his strengths, we’ve made him play as a lone ahead after I don’t assume he has the physique to play that.
“We’ve had this debate earlier than about [Sergio] Aguero, however I believe Aguero’s a stockier, extra stable, strong participant than Hernandez.
“And if you happen to look at another participant that leads a line within the Premier League, they’re all huge, over six foot, stocky, highly effective, so the system doesn’t work for Hernandez.

“We had been buzzing for that. And I used to be buzzing, I couldn’t anticipate him to signal.
“But you look back and you think: ‘okay, maybe it is time for him to go now in January’.”
