Mexico Soccer: No escape for Javier Hernandez


There doesnt seem to be an end in sight to the growing frustration Javier Hernandez is experiencing at Manchester United.

Old Trafford has become a prison. Currently stuck in Manchester, Hernandez’s decision to stay seems to be finally taking a toll on the Little Pea’s bright demeanor.

Sending out strange messages on social media is not a common thing for Hernandez to do. This continuous omission from first team action has finally spawned a different side to him. Even head coach of El Tri Miguel Herrera said to have found Hernandez to be a bit frustrated with his current situation at United.

In Wednesday’s clash against Arsenal, Hernandez remained an unused sub in a stalemate that painted perfect for the Little Pea to resolve with a single goal.

The young Mexican striker continues to lurk in the shadows awaiting his chance to shine. But it seems that Hernandez is still yet to gain the confidence of head coach David Moyes to feature in important games for United.

Its been a recurring theme for The Little Pea to sit out big games. It happened with Sir Alex Ferguson so its no surprise to see it happen with Moyes as well.

The Little Pea always tends to get sidelined against teams on the upper half of the Premier League table. Which is ironic considering that Hernandez tends to excel when given the opportunity against a team like Chelsea, holding a nearly flawless record against the blues.

But this season has by far been his most unproductive to date, acquiring just 7 goals in all competitions.

The acquisition of Juan Mata being just another blow to Hernandez’s possibilities at first team action, pushing him farther down in the United hierarchy.

Deadlocked and unable to make a move Hernandez will have to wait until after the summer to escape. If he does well in Brazil then surely a variety of opprtunities will open up for him to finally make his exit away from Manchester.
