Former Manchester United striker says he’d play for the club for free, he’s a big fan favourite since his time at the club.
Javier Hernandez, a former Manchester United striker, has promised to play for the team “free” if he ever makes a comeback to Old Trafford.
Hernandez, 34, worked for Man United for five years under the renowned manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
He contributed to the Red Devils winning two Premier League championships with 59 goals throughout all competitions.
The fact that the man known as “Chicharito” claims he would play for free if he returned to Manchester United shows that the team has a special place in his heart.
“I would respond, “Yes, I’ll play for free,” if United came for me. Yes, of course, I’d do it “via The Mirror, he stated.
But I also want to show my club a lot of respect. My mentality is focused entirely on the LA Galaxy winning a championship, and I am playing very consistently.
“If things happen in the future, then they will happen, but in my mind, I am completely with LA.”
It comes at a time when Erik ten Hag is short on forwards due to the injuries to Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo, both of whom desire to leave the club.
Ten Hag has subsequently started looking for a new forward, and a number of targets have been suggested.
The Dutchman’s tenure as Man United’s manager got off to a disastrous start when his team lost shockingly at home to Brighton last weekend.
Hernandez went on to say that his former squad needed to move past Ferguson’s departure.
The Mexican attacker continued, “United need to move past Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure.
Would you like someone like that? Unanimously, yeah. However, Sir Alex has left, and things will never be the same.
Because having a manager for 26 years in the manner that Sir Alex did is not easy in life, I am not surprised by what has transpired at United.
