Chicharito: I’m the luckiest player in the world to be at this club

“Right now, I’m happy. Every time you have a proper rest and I made my first pre-season with the team of course it’s going to help me a lot. I’m the luckiest player in the world to be at this club.” Javier Hernandez

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez became an instant fans favourite at Old Trafford with his infectious attitude rubbing off on all that watch him.

Every time he speaks, he does so with a smile on his face and despite having his opportunities limited by the arrival of Robin van Persie and the rise of Danny Welbeck, his hard work ethic and determination have kept him fondly in the hearts of fans.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference today, he said he was the “luckiest player in the world to be at this club”. That sort of attitude is one that you love to see, especially from a player fighting for his place in the side.

Chicharito’s instincts in front of goal looked as sharp as ever against Wigan and now that he has scored his first goal of the season, hopefully we might see our little Mexican playing more of a role as the fixture list starts to hot up.
