Manchester United need Hernandez - Moyes

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes has insisted that Javier Hernandez is needed at Old Trafford.

The Mexico international hit the headlines at the weekend after retweeting an article in which his compatriot Carlos Vela, once of Arsenal and now with Real Sociedad, urged him to consider leaving the Red Devils if he continues to spend time on the bench.

Hernandez has scored three goals in his last two appearances for the reigning Premier League champions - the dramatic winning goal against Stoke City and a brace against Norwich City in the Capital One Cup - before being left out of the team's 3-1 Premier League victory over Fulham on Saturday.

However, Moyes remains adamant that the 25-year-old is valuable member of his squad.

"We need Javier Hernandez; he's very good for us," Moyes told reporters. "He's scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we'll continue to use him."

In the article which Hernandez retweeted, Vela stated: "If [Hernandez] plays regularly he will score, so I don't totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

"If he doesn't play regularly he will need to think about leaving.

"You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs - but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him."

Hernandez is expected to play a role in Manchester United's Champions League tie away at Real Sociedad this evening.
