The Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has said that he still has a lot to learn from his teammate Javier Hernandez. The Mexican striker has not been in the first team often this season, but it is incredible to know that he scored 20 goals in his debut season with Manchester United. Due to the presence of players like Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney ahead of him in the pecking order, Hernandez has found himself in the substitute bench more often than not. Despite this, he has contributed immensely to the team coming on as a substitute in many matches.
The star striker Robin van Persie has said that he has learned a lot from the Mexican, who is extremely enthusiastic in training and on the pitch. Van Persie has credited the way Hernandez spends a lot of time on the gym even though he has not been used more often by the manager. Van Persie has also praised the enthusiasm of the young striker Danny Welbeck, who has not been used in his favourite position by the manager this season. Van Persie has made an instant impact on the Manchester United team after scoring 14 goals so far this campaign. He was signed from Arsenal for £ 24 million.
“It goes both ways — I can learn from them as well. For example, I love Chicharito’s enthusiasm. I love how he plays and trains and does his work off the pitch after training. A couple of weeks ago he wasn’t playing as much, but he was in the gym every day doing extra work and that sets a big example for everyone. So when you have four strikers being so professional, it sets the tone for the others,” said van Persie. United opened a six-point advantage over City courtesy of the van Persie strike in the Manchester derby.
