Javier Hernandez has been speaking about his brace for Real Madrid yesterday.
Much of the focus at Manchester United this summer has of course been on the arrival of several top players. It is almost easy to forget that they also let a fair few names go.
Nani has gone to Sporting Lisbon, Tom Cleverley Aston Villa and Danny Welbeck is now at Arsenal. And with the arrival of Radamel Falcao there was no longer room for Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez at Old Trafford.
With that in mind he joined Real Madrid for the season, acting as back-up for Karim Benzema.
And he bagged his first goals for his new club yesterday. Hernandez, known for being a fox in the box goal poacher, smashed home two strikes from outside the box to put the icing on the cake of an impressive 8-2 win against newly promoted Deportivo La Coruna.
And after the game he spoke to the Spanish press about his performance. In quotes translated by Inside Spanish Football Chicharito said:
“I came to score goals for this club. I have to thank my teammates because thank God they got off to a great start. I hope to get more minutes to try and do great things...
He went on to discuss how he is finding things at Real since his summer switch, admitting he has learned a thing or two since making the move:
“There’s always room for improvement, perfection doesn’t exist and we need to keep looking for it. It’s something they taught me. There’s never going to be a perfect game, you have to keep working and even though we haven’t allowed a lot of goals, you need to keep improving.
“I always try to be fair and humble, it’s a great start and it’s given me confidence. I want to be at this level for as long as possible.”
If he continues to score goals like the pair he bagged today then his future may very well lie at Manchester united after all.
