Chicharito thanks Reds fans
Javier Hernandez has thanked the ManUtd.com readers for voting him October’s Player of the Month.
In an exclusive interview with the official website, the six-goal striker reflected on a fabulous month that saw him hit winners against Braga and Chelsea.
When asked if it was extra special to win an accolade decided by the supporters, he replied: “Of course, I always say that I always have thanks for all the fans for their support. Not only for myself but for all the players and all the team, we thank all the fans who go to the stadium and all the fans who watch on TV. I always have words of thanks to them.
“It was a very good month. The only bad result was in the Capital One Cup when we lost a goal with 30 seconds to go. But we’re really happy we went there and won against Chelsea in the league. It was a very tough game and we know Stamford Bridge is obviously a very difficult place to go – we hadn’t won there [in the league] for the last 10 years.
“We’re very happy we’ve won all our games in the Champions League and [Barclays] Premier League as well as we got some results that went in our favour so we’re very pleased with that.”
Chicharito was asked about Sir Alex Ferguson setting a 20-goal target for the campaign for his Mexican marksman.
“I never have a target,” he asserted. “I never do that. The only target here is to play a lot of games to help my team and with my professional aims to do my business on and off the pitch.”
