A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United…
Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has been speaking about the opportunity to get some game-time for Mexico.
In an interview with Record and later republished by Sky Sports, the United striker is quoted as saying, “I am very eager to play as my club don’t take me much into account. I hope I have the opportunity to play.
Mexico face Nigeria in the early hours of tomorrow morning English time and Hernandez sees its importance.
“It’s definitely a good game because playing will help us both toward the World Cup.”
A goal or two for Hernandez could also force his club boss David Moyes to pay close attention.
The paper claims the United boss has told friends and fellow staff members at the club that he is worried about the Dutch striker in terms of team contribution.
With no claims to back up the story – and with the international break often inviting such headlines – there is nothing to suggest this is true.
While United have clearly been struggling this season, the Dutch striker has maintained a relatively impressive strike-rate considering he has been side-lined by injury at times during this campaign.
But only time will tell if the Dutchman is part of the new manager’s long-term plans.
