The superlatives have been exhausted, the comparisons are obvious and the goals keep on coming, but can Chicharito get even better?
His work ethic, movement and of course his goals in debut season which saw him with a permanent smile on his face, have endeared him to all United fans, and hard work in particular could be the key to further success.
“I was educated by my parents in that way,” Hernandez recently said. “If you want something in your life, you have to work hard. I know football is a job, but I am enjoying it so much.”
Hernandez was the buy of the season last year and his adaptation to English football has been astonishing. The Mexican striker knows though, that the hard work starts now in maintaining his form.
“Pre-Season is very important and you need to work hard in order to start the season well,” he told ManUtd.com. “The facilities in America are wonderful and I have so many great memories of last year’s pre-season.”
Much was made of his partnership with Wayne Rooney last season, but he was also effective when paired with Berbatov. It seems Chicharito is the perfect foil for any striker. He isn’t afraid to come deep and get the ball. He will run defenders into the ground and most importantly he takes up great positions and scores goals.
Hernandez got better and better last season and eventually earned the full trust of Sir Alex and the fans, and I can’t wait to see what the ‘Little Pea’ has in store for us this season.
