Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez is one frustrated man due to lack of playing time.
That is as far as his starting role status with Manchester United is concerned.
The 24-year-old striker on Wednesday admitted feeling uneasy over his reduced number of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford this season.
Hel has started seven Premier League fixtures this term, compared to 15 and 18 in 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively, but still ranks alongside Wayne Rooney as the club’s second highest goalscorer with 16 in all competitions.
There are rumours that Atletico Madrid are lining up the Mexico international as they prepare to lose strikers Radamel Falcao and Adrian Lopez.
United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is said to be ready to listen to offers for a host of first team fringe players at Old Trafford, including Hernandez.
“It is frustrating,” he is quoted as saying by The Sun. “All the players in the world want to start every single game, every week. Of course any player wants that.”
He added: “I’m happy to be at this club but I’d love more games. My attitude is that even when the gaffer wants me to be on the bench I’m going to do my best I have to respect the club, Manchester United. But of course I want to start more.”
