Moyes gives United striker assurances and boss reflects on loan star’s injury

A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United

At the weekend, Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez seemingly cast doubt over his future by re-tweeting comments from his friend and countryman Carlos Vela, suggesting Hernandez could leave Old Trafford if he does not get regular game-time.

But United boss David Moyes has again gone on record to stress the importance of the Mexican striker.

In quotes published by Sky Sports, Moyes said, “We need Javier Hernandez. He is very good for us.

He’s scored a lot of goals over the last few years and continues to do so, so we’ll continue to use him.”

Whether he will get some time on the pitch for this evening’s match at Real Sociedad will be revealed in due course.

Another United striker is in the news, with Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov revealing that Federico Macheda’s premature departure due to injury has been a big blow to the Championship side.

Speaking to the Doncaster Free Press, Dickov said, “We’ve missed Kiko because the one thing he is is a goal-scorer.

He’s got that fantastic knack of being in the right place at the right time, and when he gets a chance he finishes it off more often than not. Any team would miss quality like that.”

And finally, Fergie's fledglings are set to be the subject of a new film. Released next month, The Class of ’92 tells the story of the likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes as they ultimately became club legends.
