Javier Hernandez is preparing with the rest of the Mexico squad for the crunch World Cup Qualifier with Panama on Friday but has been speaking about his limited playing time at Old Trafford this season. New Mexico Coach, Victor Manuel Vucetich has stressed that he wants players who are getting regular action at club level to represent El Tri and so Hernandez would be one of those in doubt.
The words of Victor Manuel Vucetich resonate most clearly with Chicharito and for the benefit of Mexican football it would be great to see him playing every week. Chicharito is all to aware of this situation and seemed to suggest that it may be necessary to leave Manchester in search of this.
“I’m working on earning a starting place. I know that with my day-to-day work on and off the field, I’m going to achieve it, either here (at Manchester United) or in whichever other club.”
There would be any number of potential suitors for a proven goalscorer, like Chicharito, in Europe and the move could be hugely beneficial to the player and Mexico.
However, Hernandez did not suggest he would be forcing through a move away from Old Trafford anytime soon. In fact, Chicharito suggested that the current crop of United strikers creates a healthy competition. “The internal competition has always been healthy and that also helps the team.” Good words from Chicharito and undoubtedly it does help the team to have a player of his calibre waiting in the wings but for how long can Hernandez play this role in his career?
