Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has revealed he almost quit football before joining the Barclays Premier League club.

The Mexico international last month signed a new five-year contract at Old Trafford after making a huge impression in his first season at the club.

Hernandez scored 20 goals in all competitions last term after joining United from Chivas of Guadalajara in the summer of 2010. Yet the 23-year-old has not always enjoyed his football and told Inside United: "It was about three years ago and I had a lot of questions about whether or not this was the path God wanted me to follow."
