Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, who is also known as Chicharito, has said that he is not looking to set any goal targets for this season. Javier Hernandez was one of the best players for Manchester United last season after arriving as a pretty unknown entity in the summer. He scored more than 20 goals in his inaugural season at United, which has only increased to the expectations from him this season. He has so far delivered 12 goals for United. Wayne Rooney has been the leading marksman for United this season with 28 goals. It is unlikely that Javier Hernandez will be able to match Rooney’s record this season.
With only a few games remaining in the season, many have been expecting to see Javier Hernandez return to the first-team action with a lot of goals. The Mexican forward, however, has said that he has not set any goal targets for this season, and is looking forward to win the Premier league title more than anything else. United have the opportunity to win the record 20th Premier league title if they see off the challenge from Manchester City. Hernandez also praised striker Wayne Rooney by saying that he is one of the most complete players he has played alongside.
“My only target is to win the Premier League. It doesn’t matter if I score a lot of goals if I don’t win anything with the club. The most important thing is the team and [for the team] to win all the trophies and cups. People ask me all the time if I have a target of goals, and I always respond that the goal is a consequence of the effort of all the team,” Hernandez told ESPN. Hernandez also revealed that he is spending a lot of time in the gym in order to compete in the Premier league.
