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.


Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, also commonly known as Chicharito, has said that he is certainly not worried about the sub role he is having to play at the moment. Javier Hernandez is not the first choice for manager Sir Alex Ferguson at the moment. He has spent some time on the injury table recently, which seems to have brought other players into contention for the same position. Players like Danny Welbeck have emerged as a real alternative for Javier Hernandez. In the last few weeks, for Alex Ferguson has been picking Danny Welbeck more often than not, which has led to a substitute role for Javier Hernandez.

However, the Mexican international, who scored 20 goals last season, has said that he is not worried about the substitute role, as he feels that he will get the opportunities at Manchester United are provided he proves his fitness and form. Despite being a newcomer to the Premier league last season, Javier Hernandez managed to secure 20 goals in all competitions for Manchester United. He was influential in helping Manchester United lift the record 19th Premier league title last season. Javier Hernandez has said that he expects to be back into the first-team fold soon, as he has scored three goals in the last three matches.

“I don’t play any different. If I play one minute, 10 minutes or 90 minutes I try to play the same. My mind is always to do my best and help my team. Every player in every team wants to play as many minutes as possible, but I don’t care if I start or I’m a substitute. I just want to enjoy it. I am living a dream to play for Manchester United,” he told the official website of Manchester United recently.
