Javier Hernández admits he dreams of winning the treble with Manchester United.

The 24-year-old won the Premier League title in his first season at Old Trafford in 2011, but the Mexico international is yet to taste success in the FA Cup and Champions League with the Red Devils.

Hernández was inspired by United’s treble heroes in 1999 and the striker is desperate to help the 19-time English champions repeat the remarkable feat.

“My real dream – and I swear it is not about scoring the biggest goal – is to win the treble,” Hernández told United’s website.

“One year at least, I want to win the league, I want to win the Champions League – we were so close in my first year – and I want to win the FA Cup and the League Cup.

“I think the treble is the most complicated thing in the world for any club to win. So that is my dream, to lift all those trophies in one season.”

Hernández scored 10 goals in 23 Premier League appearances last season, but the Mexican was unable to prevent United ending the season without a major trophy.

“It was a very strange season because we know that Manchester United have always won trophies in their history, and last season we only won the Community Shield at the start of the season and then we didn’t win anything,” he added.

“So it was very disappointing but we need to look forward. I think that’s going to help us as a team because all the experienced players and all the young ones want to learn and to keep fighting because we don’t want a repeat of last season.”
