Is Chicharito 'wasted' at Manchester United?



Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has admitted that he may have to leave the club to start playing as regularly as he would like.

According to the Mirror, Hernandez has started just two of new United boss David Moyes' 11 games in charge, having fulfilled the role of impact player from the bench in three years under the now-retired Sir Alex Ferguson.

Although the Mexico forward said he remains happy at the Premier League champions, he hinted he might only achieve his aim of starting games on a regular basis if he moves to another club, the report said.

Hernandez, who was a target for Atletico Madrid in the summer, has scored just once this season and admitted his lack of regular starts was a concern for him as he assessed his future, the report added.

He said that he was working towards earning a spot as a starter and knew that his performance on the pitch would allow him to achieve that goal someday either at Man United or elsewhere for any other club.

Hernandez said that he was happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world, but just needed to be given more opportunities to showcase what he can do.

Hernandez admitted the competition was stiff, with Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney ahead of him in the pecking order, and Danny Welbeck also vying for a starting place, the report further said.
