United - Hernandez on Life at United!

United - Hernandez on Life at United!

Nestling away in that pull-out bit of the nations leading tabloid, is a great little interview with our Mexican striker, Javier Hernandez.

Carried out by Geoff Sweet, Javier gives an insight into his fears about not being granted a work permit and having to be farmed out to a European side to pass time, commenting,

"United`s interest in me came as a complete surprise. Initially I believed it to be pure rumour but now I am here."

"Even when I signed the deal, I was still worried about the question hanging over my work permit."

"At any given moment I could have gone on loan to another European club. But United worked the situation very well."

It must have been a worrying time, especially for someone so young and so far away from home.

Continuing, the interview goes on to his early United career fulfilling his long awaited dream, remarking,

"And though it is complicated to make an early impression at a big club like United, plus it is not easy to adapt to a new country, United helped me through."

"Many people thought Spain or Italy would offer me the best chance in Europe. But my dream was to play for United and win the Premier League."

Naturally, no journalist worth his slat was going to miss out on asking a question about the Wayne Rooney saga this week, and that proved to be the case with Javier conceding,

"Wayne spoke with the veterans of the dressing room. The situation came as a surprise to me, so I`m just glad he is staying. Had he gone it would have been bad news for us."

But, when moving on to the subject of the goals he`s already netted for United, is Javier having a laugh when he remarks,

"My best so far was the first against Chelsea. But I will always remember my Champions League debut with the winner in Valencia."

"We needed the victory and it came in the final minutes. It was a very emotional moment for me."

If I recall rightly the goal he scored at Wembley can, at best, be described as something of a fluke.

Interesting interview though, nevertheless, and a pleasant change from all the Rooney related articles that have dominated the pages in recent days.
