Hernandez a 'big part in the future of Man United', says Moyes
David Moyes believes Javier Hernandez is going to be a big part on the future of Manchester United, despite rarely featuring so far this season, writes ESPN.
Moyes was completely dismissive of speculation surrounding Hernandez leaving United in January, even though the Mexico forward had made only one Premier League start this season.
“It not a question for now,” Moyes said. “He will play a lot of games before the end of the season. He is someone who is going to play a big part in the future of Manchester United,” he added.
The United manager also confirmed Adnan Januzah will be ready for his debut in the Champions League for the clash against Real Sociedad on Wednesday. “He is now available. The way his date of birth and time here works out. He is an exceptional talent,” Moyes explained.
But with four key players missing from training on Tuesday, Moyes was unsure if Tom Cleverley will be 100% for the Group A fixture. Cleverley has not featured for United since the 2-1 win at Sunderland, but believes Danny Welbeck could feature, with Cleverley’s injury not as bad as first thought.
“Danny Welbeck had a little bit of an injury from the game so we will have to check that. Tom Cleverley is not as bad as we thought. They have got a chance,” he said.
Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic were the other two absentees from training on Tuesday, but Moyes is confident of the defenders’ progress: “We have got one or two knocks or niggles. Vida and Rio are making good progress.”
United currently top Group A in the Champions League with four points, and could remain top on Wednesday evening with a win against Real Sociedad who picked up their first win in eight matches against Valencia on the weekend.
