Javier Hernandez enjoyed an excellent first season at Manchester United following his £6m move. He scored 20 goals in all competitions and earned a regular place in our starting XI, ahead of the Premier League’s top scorer, Dimitar Berbatov.
This season he has dealt with two periods out on the sidelines with injuries, which has seen him drop below Danny Welbeck in pecking order. He’s still managed 9 goals in all competitions though and despite only starting 12 games is in the league’s top 20 scorers this season.
Chicharito claims that whether he starts a game or comes on for the last minute, he is ready to give everything to help the club.
“In my mind I’ve only one aim and that is to always improve,” Hernandez said. “Maybe people have their opinion of me and how I am doing this season. The second term at a new club can always be tough but while I am still scoring, I am happy. It’s been a difficult campaign because I have had some injuries that have disrupted my rhythm but now I am fit again and feel fresh for the important part of the season coming up. I try to learn all the time from the coaches and players at United because, here, you can never stop. I am working hard to improve and I know there is more to come from me. That is why I always give everything. I have always said I am ready to give the gaffer everything whether I am on the pitch for one minute or 90 minutes.”
