Hernandez Has Room For Improvement
Old Trafford golden boy Javier Hernandez says he is working hard towards improving his all around ability after a stellar debut year for Manchester United.
The 23-year-old Mexican, fresh from his Gold Cup triumph with Mexico where he finished top scorer, was arguably the bargain of last season after a handsome return of 20 goals for the Red Devils. But Hernandez understands he still needs to put in the work on the training ground.
“I am working on all aspects of my game – speed, strength, technical ability with the ball, movement – and heading”, he said.
“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.”
Given his relative height, the 5ft 9in striker has even weighed in with some headed goals. His effort against against Stoke being particularly memorable.
“I have been a little lucky with some of my goals. There have been a few headers in there. I work on that side of my game because I am not the tallest guy.
The emergence of Hernandez led to Dimitar Berbatov playing a bit part role in the second half of last season and the £7 million signing has nothing but gratitude towards 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.”
