Manchester United’s Mexican striker Javier Hernandez has made quite an impression at Old Trafford since his move back in August 2010 but it seems that he is getting a reputation as a bit of a supersub. Javier has managed to bag 10 goals while coming off of the bench for Manchester United, which has only been bettered by one man in the history of the club.
Hernandez explained, “Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. I know. I don’t know what makes me effective as a substitute. I don't have the answer. In football you can’t always come up with a reason, because of this or that. I don’t play any different whether I start a game or come on as a substitute. If I play one minute, 10 minutes or 90 minutes I try to play the same. My mind is always to do my best and help my team. There are some times in the game when we need to score and perhaps I have had a little bit of luck.”
He added, “I just want to help my team. I don’t care if I’m on the bench. Last year I was on the bench at the start and then I was in the team towards the end of the season. The gaffer has the answers. Every player in every team wants to play as many minutes as possible, but I don’t care if I start or I’m a substitute. I just want to enjoy it. I am living a dream to play for Manchester United.” Javier Hernandez may well get a start against Ajax at Old Trafford tomorrow night, with Manchester United leading 2-0 on aggregate.
