Javier Hernandez voices displeasure with role at Manchester United



(UPDATE Javier Hernandez suffers knee injury in Mexico-Nigeria Exhibition)

25-year-old striker Javier Hernandez is disgruntled and malcontent about his role with Manchester United. He’s only started in one of the last ten games, and since David Moyes took over, Chicharito has seen his status reduced to that of a peripheral role.

Today, when speaking about playing for Team Mexico he said:

“I’m very eager to play as my club don’t take me much into account. I hope I have the opportunity to play [for Mexico].

“When you are called up, you have to be thankful and if not called up, you have to keep working.”

“I’m very happy and thankful with this call-up, like I was when I was called up for the first time.”


We know Robin van Persie seems to be extremely unhappy at Old Trafford, is Javier Hernandez as well? Obviously. And he’s hard a rough, tumultuous career. Chicharito came very close to quitting football altogether on once occasion. Javier Hernandez was selected as the coverboy for United’s posters promoting their summer exhibition tour in North America, so maybe they know something about his status that we don’t? It wouldn’t surprise us if he’s out the door along with RVP.

According to the Daily Mail:

Tottenham, Inter Milan and Juventus have all been linked with a move for Hernandez, with United wanting in the region of £15million for the goal poacher.

Hernandez, a £7m buy four years ago, has started just 10 of United’s 41 games this season and has been an unused sub in their last three encounters.
