Tony Cottee has revealed that he is concerned about the current situation of West Ham striker Javier Hernandez.
The Mexican arrived at the London Stadium during the summer from German club Bayer Leverkusen but has failed to establish himself at the East London club as he has gone on to score just four goals from 21 appearances in all competitions thus far.
Hernandez’s injury battles as well as good form from Marko Arnautovic has now seem him drop down the pecking order at the Hammers under David Moyes.
Cottee has now admitted that he is concerned about Hernandez and feels that a modern day striker should be able to offer for than the former Manchester United and Real Madrid man has this season.
He said: “I’m concerned with Chicharito because I think the modern striker needs to do more for the team than just put the ball into the net. I think he’s the best finisher at the club, but he needs to start banging some goals in. Chicharito hasn’t played in his preferred position and he’s been up there on his own with no service when he has played there so I do feel sorry for him.”
