Javier HernÃƒÂ¡ndez happy with his Manchester United role
The 22-year-old Mexico forward is happy to start from the bench at United despite impressive form
Manchester United striker Javier HernÃƒÂ¡ndez insists he has “no problems” with being used as a substitute despite his impressive goalscoring form.
The 22-year-old Mexico forward, who Sir Alex Ferguson brought to Old Trafford last summer following a prolific campaign with Mexican club Guadalajara, has been used sparingly in his debut season but still boasts nine league goals in 18 appearances.
His brace in Saturday’s 4-0 victory at Wigan Athletic helped to highlight his value to the side but his path to a regular staring berth is still blocked by Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov.
“I have no problems being on the bench,” Hernandez told the Sun. “I understand that football is a team sport, not like golf or tennis.
“So you have to help your team when you play from the beginning but also when you come on from the bench.”
He added: “We are like pieces of a jigsaw and the boss decides how to use us. If Ferguson picks me for the starting line-up, that would be great but if not, that’s fine too.”
