Javier Hernandez told Claro Sports he was relieved to leave Manchester United, after claiming United lost faith in his abilities.
Mexico striker Hernandez sealed a season-long loan to Real Madrid and believes he was not given a chance during the latter stages of his time at Old Trafford.
"There was no confidence. I remained patient and that's why I'm here today. It was a very tough year especially because they didn't believe in me," he said.
"I really want to make the most of my time here," he added. "Any footballer dreams about joining Real Madrid. I know I'm here for a reason. The statistics support me, I'm a good player and a good person.
"I had the chance to meet Ancelotti when he was Chelsea coach. The faith he has in his players motivates me and makes me work hard."
