Chicharito hungry for more United success


Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has set his sights on another Barclays Premier League title this season.

The Mexican international has been a revelation at Old Trafford since joining from Chivas Guadalajara, with 'Chicharito' scoring 20 goals in all competitions during his first season last term.

His goals helped Sir Alex Ferguson's to a 19th English league championship, and the aim remains to replicate such success once again this term.

"I’m sure we can do it. We have a lot of young players who are hungry to do well, and that helps inspire the rest of the squad," he told the official Manchester United website.

"They may have been here for many years and won a lot of trophies, but they still have a lot of desire. I think we have a good mix of youth and experience, and that will be very important for us."

Of the young players, Hernandez was quick to single out England international striker Danny Welbeck for special praise.

The former Sunderland loanee has emerged as a major attacking threat for the Red Devils this season, and whilst the 20-year-old is providing competition for places in the starting line-up, Hernandez is delighted to see the player improving.

"I’d seen him play quite a few times, and not only last year when he was on loan at Sunderland," said the forward.

"I remember when I was in Mexico and I was watching Manchester United on television – Danny was just starting to come into the team and be given a few chances.

"You could see he had a lot of potential then, and was improving all the time. He was a good prospect then and now he’s even."
