Javier Hernandez is a lot more concerned with winning titles than being the top scorer for Manchester United, the forward has told the club's official website.

“Of course I’m very happy to score," Hernandez said.

"As a striker, it gives me a lot of confidence but I don’t care if I keep scoring or not because my first goal is to win the three tournaments we are playing in.”


 

Manchester United are pushing to recreate the glory of 1999 by winning the treble. They are in a good position in all three competitions to date, leading the Barclays Premier League title fight, convincingly progressing to the Champions League quarter finals, and effectively disposing of Arsenal in the FA Cup quarters.

Sir Alex Ferguson has hailed Hernandez's talent as an integral part of Manchester United’s success in the season. In the Champions League tie with Marseille, with pressure on United to score and stop the opposition getting an all important away goal, Hernandez stepped up and got two goals on the board to put the Red Devils in the winning seat.

Hernandez, nicknamed Chicharito which is Spanish for 'little pea', expressed absolute joy at being able to play in European, English Cup and Premiership Title games.

“I’m very happy we are in three tournaments. It’s very difficult but we want to win all of them.”

But the 22 year old is humbled by the experience of being United’s up and coming star, and won’t be forgetting the history rich club that surrounds him and the legends that have played at Old Trafford before him.
