“Chicharito was maybe the best player last season but he wasn’t brought in as a huge star.”

Javier Hernandez’s rise to prominence was one of the stories of last season.
United’s signing of the Mexican came as some what of a surprise in April last year and from the brief glimpses we saw of him at the World Cup and then his performances during pre season it was hopeful we had unearthed a gem.

Hernandez’s stock continued to rise and as the season wore on he usurped the place of top scorer Dimitar Berbatov as he would go on to score 20 goals in his debut season.

Hernandez’s emergence should serve as hope to players who are looking to make that breakthrough and none more so than his United teammate Anders Lindegaard.

The Dane was brought in in January and having made some fleeting appearances for United during the season, the signing of David De Gea means it is likely that he will have to settle for a place as back up but he feels he has every chance of becoming united’s number 1 and will take inspiration from Hernandez last season:
“You have players coming to the club who are not huge signings and make their way.
Chicharito was maybe the best player last season but he wasn’t brought in as a huge star. He made his way and he’s a real example of how to do it.
“There are a lot of clever experts in this game and that’s just a part of it. I don’t mind what the experts say.”
