The Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has said that he is confident that the club will be not making the same mistakes as they have made in the past European campaigns and do well in the Champions League this time around. Despite being in the final of the Champions League numerous occasions the past, the club were unable to get past the group stages of the competition last time around.

This meant that they finished trophyless for the first time after four years, with Man City winning the Premier League. Javier Hernandez was not used to the full extent last season due to the emergence of Danny Welbeck.

However, he has had a few first-team opportunities this season and he recently scored against Wigan during the weekend. As a result of the goals against Wigan, he is now confident that Sir Alex Ferguson will pick up for the match against Galatasaray in the group stages of the Champions League. One of the main mistakes that the club made in the last season was not taking the group matches seriously, which led to the likes of Benfica getting a result at Old Trafford. Javier Hernandez has said that the club will be looking to get all three points in their first home European match.

“We know the history of this club. We know we have to aim for the top in every competition. We always look to the Champions League final and we try to win it. That’s the only thing in our mind. We want to prove we can win and not make the same mistakes as we did last season,” said Hernandez ahead of the match. Even though Manchester United will not have the full complement of defenders, the club will certainly be confident ahead of this match due to the weekends result against Wigan.


Mexico and the Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has said that the national team has a lot of work to do in the World Cup qualifier match against El Salvador. The national team began their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-1 win over Guyana. Yet, Hernandez reckons that the work is not over yet and they need to continue the good work with victory against El Salvador.

Mexico took a 3-0 lead just after the second half began in the match against Guyana. However, Hernandez is of the opinion that Mexico should have won by a much bigger margin than the 3-1 result because they were far superior.

He told Man Utd news that there is still room for improvement within the team in the way they play. Hence, he has warned El Salvador that they can expect much better from Mexico in the upcoming World Cup qualifier. Mexico are one of the favourites to get into the 2014 FIFA World Cup due to the strength of their squad in this region. In fact, due to the quality of their young talent that includes the likes of Hernandez, they are one of the favourites to achieve something big at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, though Lionel Messi might have something to say about that!

“The El Salvador match will be difficult, but we still have to think of the Guyana match because there are things to improve. We should have won by a wider margin. Even winning, drawing or losing, there are always things to improve,” said Hernandez ahead of the El Salvador match. El Salvador, though, can come into the match with confidence high due to the fact that we have won the 2010 World Cup qualifier match between the two sides 2-1. The Mexican coach, though, has said that the current side should not pay too much attention to this match.
