Manchester United manager David Moyes has moved to ease the concerns of striker Javier Hernandez, Sky
Hernandez was advised to leave United by his international teammate Carlos Vela, who gave an interview in which he claimed it was in Hernandez’s best interests to move on, and Hernandez appeared to endorse the sentiment when he re-tweeted a link to the interview to his 2.5m Twitter followers.
But Moyes has insisted Hernandez is part of his plans for United, despite having started only once in the Premier League this season due to the form of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. “We need Javier Hernandez; he’s very good for us,” Moyes said.
“He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him,” the manager added.
Hernandez has made three further league substitute appearances and did not get off the bench during United’s 3-1 win over Fulham on Saturday. He has four goals in the campaign, however, netting the only goal of the Capital One Cup tie with Liverpool and the winner in the 3-2 victory over Stoke City in the league.
