Keeping Javier Hernandez Injury Free!

Keeping Javier Hernandez Injury Free!

After Javier Hernandez's excellent two-goal performance last weekend, you don't want to bring down the excitement about such a massively talented and likeable new star, who at 22 is already proving himself in the Premier League.

However, it has got to be a fear that Hernandez is just the sort of player who is liable to pick up a bad injury in the Premier League, with the pace at which he runs and his more slight physical frame.

Like Walcott in the past, you hope that Herhandez's pace doesn't work against him as it would be crushing to see anything happen to a youngster who has lit up the Premier League, as it was to see Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey having to be carried off on a stretcher against Stoke last season.

Hernandez was on the end of one bad tackle in his first match against Stoke City, but he got back up very quickly after Senegalese defender Abdoulaye Faye's rash tackle from behind, which could easily have been a yellow card, or even possibly a red, had the Mexican striker made as much of a meal of it as Nani has done on occasions this season.

So far in his career however, Hernandez has remained almost completely free of injury problems. Fans of the Premier League will no doubt be keeping their fingers crossed that this good fortune continues in the tough tackling arena that is English football, so we are all able to see this brilliantly talented youngster reaching the heights in the English game which he no doubt will, injury permitting.

He's not the sort to be bubble-wrapped and protected, his attitude is more of a "what will be will be" approach and so regardless of the oppositon, his instructions and etc he will play his game even at the risk of his health and playing-career. Why should he tip-toe around the physical teams like Stoke and Blackburn? Put 'em in their place and let them know that the "break-a-leg" performance isn't full-proof especially against players with a pair of 8ull0cks. Long live Hernandez!

He seems clever & quick-footed enough to avoid the tackles.Dos santos must be asking himself what went wrong? He was the predicted star export now look.
