One cannot help but feel sorry for Mexican superstar Javier Hernandez. The striker is undoubtedly one of the best finishers in world football and has been a lethal goalscorer wherever he has played in his career.
Hernandez’s goalscoring record for Guadalajara was exemplary while the striker made a name for himself at Manchester United for his ability to score important goals when it mattered the most. Even at Real Madrid, his return of 3 goals in 6 matches is not bad.
Despite his fine record though, Hernandez never seems to be able to cement a place in the first team at any of the aforementioned sides.
After a frustrating season last year with Manchester United, Hernandez moved to Real Madrid on loan over the summer in search of regular first team football but the striker has featured for only 153 minutes of action for the Los Blancos.
Therefore, there has been a lot of speculation regarding Hernandez’s future at the club and it has been suspected that the striker will have to return to Manchester United.
Hernandez says that he cannot remain on the bench forever
However, Hernandez has stated that he is currently not focusing on his future and added that he is only concentrating on matters in hand at Madrid.
Nevertheless, the striker go on to issue an ultimatum to both United and Madrid by saying that he cannot stay on the bench forever and said that he needs regular first team football from next season onwards.
Hernandez said, “I am fully concentrated on Real Madrid at the moment. We have a big chance to have a really successful season – and when you are fighting for La Liga and The Champions League it is not sensible to concentrate on anybody else.
“I am not sure what will happen in the summer yet – but whatever happens I need guarantees. I am 26 now – in the summer I will be 27 – I must be at a club where I am going to be playing regularly. Wherever I am playing next season – I will make sure I have those sort of assurances.”
