Javier Hernandez has revealed that he is tired of his current playing situation whilst on international duty with Mexico.
The 24-year-old has always claimed that he was very happy with mainly being used as an impact player from the bench but it seems that may not be the case.
“I’m tired of being on the bench, I want to play,” Tutto Sport reported Hernandez as saying.
“At Manchester United all in all I’m happy but it is frustrating to play so little. I want more, luckily now I’m with the national team where I’m fine.”
Since arriving at Manchester United in the summer of 2010, Chicharito has always had an eye for goal.
The Mexican hitman scored 20 in his first season en route to becoming one of the very select United players to be named Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year in his first year with the club.
And despite a slower second season with 12 goals, his return of 18 this year in all competitions is not a bad at all, especially for a striker who has had most of his appearances this season from the bench.
From a stunning second half ‘hat-trick’ against Villa Park to important poacher goals like his winner at Stamford Bridge, Hernandez is one of the finest natural goalscorers that United have ever had.
“He is very happy at Manchester United. Javier has been there three years and has won the league twice. Not many can say they have achieved that.” Eduardo Hernandez, Javier Hernandez’s agent
It isn’t just with United that he is prolific. He is only six goals away from being Mexico’s highest all-time goalscorer at just 24 years old with an unbelievable return of 32 goals in 47. Strikers like Hernandez don’t come around very often.
Chicharito only started nine Premier League games this season and played 22 in total, so you can’t begrudge his discontent but United have to make sure that we hold onto him with the likes of Real Madrid sniffing around.
Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t let Hernandez take part in the London 2012 Olympics with Mexico where they went on to win gold in order to have him fully fit for the season but he ended up playing a bit part role.
Under Moyes, he needs to be played more. With a fully settled Kagawa and a red hot van Persie, Hernandez has the perfect team around him in which to become one of the best strikers on the planet and United need to let him do just that.
