Mexican and Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has said that he is ready to score the goals required to take Manchester United to the top of the table this season. The Mexican scored 20 goals in his debut season for the club after coming on as a £ 7 million signing from North America.

Not many expected him to score as many goals as he did in his first season, but in the second season has been a struggle after he has found first-team opportunities were limited. This has been due to the impressive form shown by the youngster Danny Welbeck. Manchester United missed out on the opportunity to lift the title for the first time in four seasons.

As a result, the manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that it would be the main priority of the club to win the Premier league. Hernandez is expected to start the new season on the bench partly because of the impressive form shown by the England striker Danny Welbeck. Yet, he has spoken in confidence that he is ready to score the goals that is necessary to take Manchester United to the top of the table. The Mexican international missed the opportunity to play in the London Olympics 2012 after manager Sir Alex Ferguson decided to withdraw him from the squad.

“It was great to get back. I really enjoyed my summer break in Mexico with all my family and my friends, but I have to say I was missing not being at Carrington. I’m very happy to be back and to see my team-mates and start pre-season. It’ll be my first complete pre-season because during the last two summers I met up with the team in America during the tour,” said Hernandez while on the pre-season tour of Asia and Africa.
