Brazilian coach Ricardo Ferretti believes Javier Hernandez should turn his back on Mexico in order to save his Manchester United career, reports the Record.

Hernandez has struggled for chances at Old Trafford in recent years, but has continued to star on the international scene. 

When playing under Sir Alex Ferguson and now David Moyes, Hernandez has often been used a substitute and has struggled to gain a consistent place in the side.

However, Ferretti now believes the striker should look to make progress with the Premier League champions and leave Mexico behind.

When discussing the situation of the striker, Ferretti told a press conference: "(Chicharito) How long was the pride of us? How many goals has the boy on the team? I believe that at a young age is among the top scorers of the selection.

"It's his right (not attend), how many lost opportunities Chicharito being a starter in the banks or Manchester to come? Then he can make that decision (to refuse), to say, 'I've almost lost my job of being a holder in Manchester , and for this."

Chicharito has been given a rare start for the Red Devils tonight as they play host to Real Sociedad. The forward will be hoping to make his mark in the side without the absent Robin van Persie.

But should the Mexican leave his country behind for the sake of his Manchester United career?
