Tottenham transfers: David Moyes wants to keep Javier Hernandez
Tottenham transfers: Manchester United manager David Moyes says he wants to keep Javier Hernandez amid interest from Spurs
David Moyes says Manchester United want to keep Javier Hernandez amid reported interest from Tottenham Hotspur.
The Mexico international has found his first-team opportunities limited at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.
Hernandez, who scored the winner in a 3-2 win against Stoke City last month, has netted once in four top-flight appearances this term.
But Moyes has no intention of selling Hernandez after the 26-year-old scored twice in a 4-0 victory over Norwich City in League Cup last week.
“We need Javier,” said Moyes.
“He’s very good for us. He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years and he continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him.
“He scored a couple of good goals the other night [against Norwich City FC in the League Cup]. Hopefully that continues.”
Meanwhile, Moyes urged United youngster Adnan Januzaj to stay strong despite being on the receiving end of rough treatment from opposition defenders.
“He gets kicked up and down in training every day. But he gets up,” added Moyes.
“He has learned from the good professionals that he has got to get on with it and accept it.
“He only needs to look at Lionel Messi, who is probably the best in the world at getting kicked, getting up and getting on with it and continually producing magic all the time.
“I am not in any way comparing him to Lionel Messi but I am saying we hope the way he gets up after he has been kicked is the way Adnan continues to behave.”
