United - Hernandez Chat!

United - Hernandez Chat!

Having admitted that dropping Javier Hernandez would be a hard decision if Wayne Rooney were to be declared fit this weekend, the tabloid press seems to have Javier as their new media darling this morning.

One of the leading tabloids carries a lovely article this morning whereby Javier discusses several things, including his religious inclinations and being compared with an Old Trafford legend - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

First up those religious inclinations with Javier explaining,

"I always pray on the pitch before a game. It is an important routine for me but it is not superstition."

"I like to pray. I talk to God and I tell him to take care of the health of both teams because the worst things for a sportsman are injuries and there are a lot of accidents on the pitch that nobody wants."

"I like to ask God to take care of me because he gave me the opportunity to play."


Fair enough, I`m not one to deride anyone`s religious leanings. Continuing though, with the comparison to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Javier added,

"Of course it is flattering because Ole is a legend at Manchester United. Usually people compare me to my dad or granddad."

"I`m only ten per cent of what Ole was. I need to work harder and keep improving to become like him."

"Obviously my dad and grandpa were both former players in Mexico but the biggest advice they give me is away from the pitch - to be careful of bad influences and bad people. I am their son and grandson so naturally they want the best for me."

"I am enjoying life in Manchester. My family have told me the fans have a new song about me (Chico is the man and he scores goals from anywhere). I need to listen to the song and thank the man who wrote it."


We`re not sure if anybody actually wrote it, these things have a habit of just evolving do they not?

Can't wait to see more of him, he just knows where the net is at all times and more importantly knows how to find out. He adds alot more than just finishing though, his off the ball movement causes big problems for defenders and if marked tightly he will open up space for other players.
