Does Hernandez have a future at Manchester United?

Published 4 Comments

Javier Hernandez can be considered as one of the most prolific strikers in the world. His ability to make small bursts and get himself into goal-scoring areas makes him a deadly asset that any team would dream of having. 

Chicharito is said to have been hard done by many over the last two seasons at Manchester United. With such an impressive first season at Old Trafford, many of the United supporters were hoping that it was only the beginning of great things to come. However, Hernandez has found it difficult in recent times to maintain a consistent starting position. 

Because of his nature, it is not surprising that he hasn’t declared his interest in leaving Old Trafford in order to get more first-team minutes. However, if he isnt given a fair chance of starting more games in the upcoming season it will be difficult to justify keeping him.

He is often compared to the great Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his ability to pick up crucial goals at crucial times. Late-winners such as the ones at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea and at Old Trafford against Newcastle United in the 4-3 thriller have ensured that United have maintained their habit of winning games because of late goals.

However, with the talent he has, it was quite disappointing seeing The Little Pea on the bench for so much of last season. He will undoubtedly want to impress United's new manager, David Moyes. With excellent performances at the on-going Confederations Cup in Brazil, he has lived up to expectations on the international front.

However, next season he will be competing with the now settled-in Robin Van Persie - possibly every striker’s worst nightmare to have to compete for a starting position with. 

To say he has does not deserve to start more often would be unfair. With 50 goals in 117 appearances in the United shirt so far, we should expect to see many more.
