Last week, Javier Hernandez retweeting an article on Twitter which referred to his Mexican team-mate’s comments about our striker’s future at the club.

“Javier is my good friend – and I hope he gets lots of chances this season at Manchester United,” said Carlos Vela. “He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach. If he plays regularly he will score, so I don’t totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games. If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving. You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs – but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him.”

It is understandable that Chicharito would start to feel frustrated about his lack of playing time, particularly when you consider how regularly he scores when he is played.

Ahead of tonight’s game against Real Sociedad, David Moyes has insisted that the Mexican is a part of his plans.

“He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years – and he continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him,” Moyes said. “We need Javier, he’s very good for us. He scored a couple of very good goals the other night. Hopefully that continues.”
