Chicharito Calls Rooney A “Monster” & Talks About Tevez Comparison
Javier Hernandez is living the dream. Playing regularly for Manchester United, scoring vital goals, getting on with your business and playing with some great players. Yet from all of his quotes and interviews, he seems so down to earth and grounded. The 22 year-old Mexican has been in sensational form in his first season in England, scoring a brilliant total of 16 goals so far and starting a very promising partnership with Wayne Rooney – pushing the Leagues top scorer, Dimitar Berbatov on the bench in the process.
‘Chicharito’, as he is known, spoke of Wayne Rooney, comparisons to the former United striker and current City player Carlos Tevez, and what his secret to success on the field is:
“Playing with Wayne is a dream. He’s a monster to be alongside and I never believed I would get so many games and goals during my first season at United.”
“’The Little Tevez’? I’m really proud that people are comparing me to him but I am Chicharito and am living my dreams at the moment.”
“I am very happy because I know there is much more to come. My secret is to study opposition defenders and work out their weak points.”
“I try to outwit them with my speed and anticipation in the area. So my goals are not down to luck.”
Hernandez was bought by Sir Alex Ferguson for £6 million this summer and is probably the buy of the season. When you consider Chelsea’s splurge of money on Torres and Manchester City’s £30 buy of Edin Dzeko, Chicharito looks such a great buy for the club.
His impressive performances in last years World Cup saw him score a few vital goals including one against France and one against Argentina, and the former Guadalajara player believes that the physical aspect of the game in better in England:
“Perhaps the better physical preparation here in England is the key to my performances. This aspect of the game is better than in South America and I have profited.”
Now Hernandez will be hoping United can push on after the international break and go on to cement their place at the top of the Premier League, and progress against City and Chelsea in the FA Cup and Champions League respectively.
