David McDonnell from Mirror Football today reveals to punters in the Football Transfer Tavern that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez will look towards leaving the club unless he starts to gain regular football.
The 25-year-old has started just two of David Moyes’ first 11 matches at the helm, having continued to play a role from the bench as he had under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Although the Mexican international remains happy with life at Old Trafford, he insists that in a World Cup year he may have to move on to achieve regular game time.
Hernandez was the hero for United during their recent 1-0 victory over Liverpool in the Capital One Cup but the Atletico Madrid target is concerned about his future with the Premier League champions.
“I strive for that [to start more games],” said the 25-year-old, who netted 20 goals in his debut season at United following a £6 million move from Chivas Guadalajara in 2010.
“I am working towards that – earning a spot as a starter. I know that my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal someday either here [in Manchester] or elsewhere for any other club.
“I am going on four years here [at Manchester United] and really, like I have always said, I am happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world, doing my best every single day to earn more minutes on the pitch.
“I just need to be given more opportunities to showcase what I can do, because all of us want to be able to contribute our part so this team can win championships.”
Should Moyes give Hernandez a regular chance from the start? Let us know your thoughts below.
