So it was all just a storm in a teacup?

Many people reached the conclusion on Thursday that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez was having a pop at Robin van Persie through a cryptic Instagram post.

To recap, after United lost to Olympiacos in the Champions League this week, van Persie told Dutch TV: “It was quite difficult because my team-mates are often in the area where I want to play.”

On Thursday morning, Chicharito posted a picture on Instagram, celebrating a goal with Patrice Evra, alongside the following message: “Without your teammates you can’t be somebody in football, always be thankful…”

Many people joined the dots together to claim that the Mexican forward was having a dig at his Dutch counterpart, but on Thursday night the Little Pea took to Twitter to clarify matters.
