Mexico national team manager Miguel Herrera says he is in favour of Javier Hernandez leaving Manchester United.

Hernandez made 24 league appearances for United last season, but just six of those were starts, and reportedly he has been told by new United manager Louis Van Gaal to look for another club.

Herrera is of the belief that a change of scenery in needed and thinks Hernandez's rumoured move to Juventus would serve the player well.

"I think [Chicharito] needs to leave," Herrera said in an exclusive interview with ESPN.

"I think [Juventus] would be a good option for him. When a coach doesn't want you - when you have your best experience, your best moment with them, and now the coach that wanted you is no longer there - it's time to move.

"I think there are a lot of opportunities. They are not bad opportunities. If he goes to Juventus that would be an extraordinary team. Without a doubt, it would be a nice change for him. Hopefully he'll see more minutes."
