Javier Hernandez’s honest appraisal

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has claimed that despite exceeding expectations in 2010/11, he can improve further next season.

The Mexican contributed 20 goals to the Old Trafford side and struck up an excellent partnership with Wayne Rooney in the Reds attack; a feat that was unexpected given his lack of experience before joining the English team. Despite this, the 23-year-old feels there is room for improvement.

“I have been a little lucky with some of my goals,” Chicarito told Inside United.

“There have been a few headers in there. I work on that side of my game because I am not the tallest guy. I am working on all aspects of my game – speed, strength, technical ability with the ball, movement – and heading.

“I am improving how I play. I am trying to be quicker with the ball, with more technique and concentration, because it is very difficult to keep the ball in this league. Of course, I have a lot of improving to do and I will work hard every day to achieve that,” the striker continued.

The Central American is thankful for the opportunity to play for one of world football’s most prestigious clubs, and knows he owes a debt of gratitude to manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I only have words of thanks for Sir Alex because he has given me a lot of opportunities to play for this club, so I owe him a lot,” the former Guadalajara forward concluded.

Hernandez is currently taking a well earned break after winning the Gold Cup with Mexico over the summer; he finished top goalscorer in the competition with seven goals.
