David Moyes Rubbishes Javier Hernandez Exit Reports By Insisting Manchester United Still Need Him

Mexican hitman not going anywhere.

Check in to Real Sociedad vs Manchester United

David Moyes has insisted that striker Javier Hernandez very much remains a part of his plans at Manchester United and has responded to claims that his future at the club looks set to be a short one, Sky Sports reports.

Earlier in the week Hernandez’s international teammate Carlos Vela urged the United man to exit the club as soon as possible over social networking site Twitter, to which Hernandez responded positively.

Chicharito has made just one Premier League start for the club so far this season, and despite finding the back of the net regularly in the side’s Capital One Cup campaign he was an unused substitute in Saturday’s victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are currently enjoying a purple patch in front of goal for the defending champions, but speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Real Sociedad Moyes insisted that there is still a place in his side for the diminutive Mexican.

“We need Javier Hernandez; he’s very good for us,” Moyes said.

“He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him.”

Vela had been quoted as saying over the weekend that his fellow Mexican may have to consider moving on, insisting there would be a host of clubs interested.

“He is one of the best finishers in England and deserves chances under the new coach.

“If he plays regularly he will score, so I don’t totally understand why a player of his quality has not played more games.

“If he doesn’t play regularly he will need to think about leaving.

“You always want to succeed at the biggest clubs – but if he is not given the chance there will be big teams in England and Europe wanting him.”
