Hernandez future at Man Utd in doubt
Javier Hernandez’s future at Manchester United is in doubt, the Daily Telegraph has reported, after the striker retweeted a story containing quotes from Mexico teammate Carlos Vela that claimed Hernandez should leave the Premier League champions for a club at which he would play more regularly.
Hernandez added nothing to the tweet but the newspaper claims the decision to share the story with his 2.5m followers on the social networking site amounts to an endorsement of Vela’s comments. Vela, who will line up for Real Sociedad against United in the Champions League this week, said: “If he plays regularly he will score, so I don’t totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.
“If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving,” Vela added. “You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs - but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him.”
Hernandez was an unused substitute for United’s 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday and has made only eight appearances so far this season, with just four of them coming in the league. Despite his lack of game time, Hernandez has scored four goals, including the winner in the Capital One Cup against Liverpool and the decisive goal in the 3-2 league win over Stoke City.
The 25-year-old has been at Old Trafford since 2010, moving from Chivas Guadalajara, and has scored 54 goals in 125 appearances.
