Javier Hernandez has been named Manchester United’s official Player of the Month in November for the second month in a row after continuing his fine goalscoring form from October.
His inspirational “hat-trick” from the bench against Aston Villa as well as goals as a substitute against Braga and QPR will certainly make it hard for him to brush off the “super sub” nick name he is earning himself – but he certainly is super.
Over 20,000 fans voted on Manutd.com and Javier Hernandez deservedly received 67% of the total vote. The Mexican striker could of folded in the shadows as Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie stole the limelight but he has made himself such an integral part of the squad.
Despite the quality of van Persie and Rooney, Hernandez is still the striker you would want a chance in the six yard box to fall to. His natural predatory instincts make him such a danger man in the penalty area and you only have to look at his minutes/goals ratio to see how good he is.
Hernandez scores a goal every 86.8 minutes whilst van Persie scores every 126.2 minutes and Rooney every 215.7 minutes. You can’t argue with that ratio.
Real Madrid might be sniffing around at the heels of our Mexican magician given the strength of our attacking options this year but they can keep away. We built our most successful season back in 1999 on four top class strikers who could all have an impact on their day and this year, we look to be building it on the same foundations once again.
Well done Hernandez.
