Javier Hernandez has claimed that after finishing the club’s 2nd highest scorer last season, he won’t be obsessing over setting a goal target for this season. He recognises that whilst his contribution will be important, he rates trophies over any personal accolades.
“I’ve never had a goal target,” Chicharito told Inside United. “I don’t want to be obsessed with scoring goals, I don’t want to be only that player who only scores goals, and if I score goals I’ve played well and if I didn’t score goals I played badly. It’s more about doing my best for the team – if the goals come then great, but if someone else scores instead of me then it’s still great for the United fans and for the club. You can never play one man against 11, and one player can never score all the goals by himself. If the goals are coming then good, but as I’ve always said, I would swap every one of my goals for a title with Manchester United.”
