Deadly marksman spends more time warming the bench than actually on the field of play.
Out-of-favour Manchester United front man Javier Hernandez has dropped a massive hint that he wants to depart the Premier League champions by retweeting a story on SkySports.com about the Mexican’s future at Old Trafford, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
Question marks regarding the prolific striker’s long-term role with the Red Devils have been doing the rounds of late, although Hernandez himself has always stated that he is happy in the north west and has no desire to move to another club.
That was, however, until the Mexico international decided to retweet to his two-and-a-half million followers a story on SkySports.com from his compatriot Carlos Vela saying that Hernandez should think about joining a new team if he continues to be overlooked by new United head coach David Moyes this season.
And despite the fact that the 25-year-old later deleted any trace of his actions, Hernadez is clearly not happy with life with the Red Devils at present.
“Javier is my good friend – and I hope he gets lots of chances this season at Manchester United,” said Vela in the article.
“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.”
Hernandez has been at United now since April 2010, when the striker signed for the Premier League giants from Mexican outfit C.D. Guadalajara for an undisclosed fee.
And in the intervening three-year period, the attacker has managed to hit the back of the net on 54 occasions in total in his 125 games for United.
