We Don’t Need Hernandez: Man Utd Manager Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says that the former English Premier League (EPL) champions don’t need the services of Mexican striker Javier Hernandez.

“I would always welcome (him) in my squad because he doesn’t need many minutes on the pitch to score but we move in another direction in a younger player in Lukaku and we have Rashford who can be a striker. So we didn’t feel that need,” Mourinho was quoted as saying on Wednesday by the Independent ahead of their International Champions Cup match against FC Barcelona.  Sri Lanka Vs India 2017: We Don’t See Any Series As A Launchpad: Virat Kohli

The Mexican returned to English football on Monday, joining EPL side West Ham United after being sold to German football club Bayer Leverkusen by then Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal in 2015.

Mourinho hailed the West Ham signing and said he never takes the time to settle and score goals.

“He left the club a few years ago, I’m not sure (if) it was his decision or the manager’s but he’s a good player, he’s a player that will always score goals,” the Portuguese said.  Watch: MS Dhoni Turn Back The Clock At MA Chidambaram Stadium With Huge Sixes

West Ham United Close To Signing Former Manchester United Star Who Could Play His First Game Against The Red Devils

West Ham United did not have the best of the seasons under Slaven Bilic in the last campaign as they failed to break into the top half of the table, on the back of a season that saw them play the Europa League qualifiers.

Though Bilic was unlucky with the number of injuries to his squad, he will know that he is lucky to keep his job and that he will not be given any more chances to get West Ham back on track next season.

So the Croat is making sure that he has enough arsenal in his squad to make sure that they can compete with the best next season.

This has seen the Hammers linked with some of the finest stars in world football at the moment and one player constantly linked with a move to the club is Mexican international Javier Hernandez.

Having played for Manchester United and Real Madrid in the past, Hernandez is one of the most prolific strikers in world football and reports suggest that West Ham and Chelsea are interested in his signature this summer.

West Ham to announce Chicharito this week

But according to reports from Sky Sports, the Hammers have won the race for the signature of the Mexican star and are set to unveil him in the upcoming days.

He has 28 Bundesliga goals to his name in two full seasons for Bayer Leverkusen but it is now understood that he is on his way back to England, to play in the Capital city next season.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth spoke to the press and revealed that both clubs are close to reaching an agreement for the player.

“One move that is edging closer is the striker Javier Hernandez,” Sheth said on Sky Sports News.

“It’s our information a move from Bayer Leverkusen could be finalised in the next week,” he added.

He also suggested that West Ham will make an improved bid for Stoke City star Marko Arnautovic soon.

‘West Ham have had two bids rejected, the latest being £20million.“

“We expect the third offer and expect it soon,” he added.

Disappointed Hernandez Rues Missed Opportunity In Confed Cup Semis

Mexico striker Javier Hernandez has expressed his sadness after being thrashed by Germany 4-1 in the FIFA Confederations Cup semi-final here.

“(I feel) sad, disillusioned, but with my head held high and proud of all from the team, the coaching staff and the fans,” the Bayer Leverkusen striker was quoted as saying by ESPNFC on Thursday.

Mexico finished second in Group A but was not good enough against a second-string German side who were more clinical than their rivals.

Mexico never let the World champions take their foot off the pedal but at the same time were guilty of muffing a hatful of chances.

If football was about justice, it’d be a different story. That’s not to demerit what Germany did or to give an excuse,” said the former Manchester United forward on the missed opportunities.

“The only thing in our heads is that we are sad. Nobody wants to lose like that, in a semi. We really wanted to reach the final.”Kumble-Kohli Matter Was Not Handled Properly, Sourav Ganguly

“But that is football,” he continued. “We went up against the world champion and it’s been useful for Mexican football to know where we are,” he added.

Hernandez said Mexico as a side has improved as they are playing European champions Portugal in a third-place clash and that the side did not reach this far four years ago.

“We are playing the European champion in the third-place playoff, which is something we didn’t reach four years ago, so something is improving. We’re going step by step, it’s not night and day,” he said.

Five Players To Look Out For In The 2017 Confederations Cup

The domestic football season is over and the International friendlies were a nice little dessert for the intense domestic campaigns for the clubs all over the world.

It will take a couple of months for club football to return and it is one of the hardest times for any football fan to endure, with little to no sport to keep them busy with throughout the day.

However, thankfully for the fans, the Confederations Cup is right around the corner and is bound to be as exciting and affair, if not better than the previous edition of the competition.

Russia, the hosts of the competition, play New Zealand in the opening game of the tournament which contains some European giants like Portugal, Germany.

The likes of Mexico, Australia, Cameroon and Chile are also fighting for this trophy and there are a number of star players up for show in this competition that kicks off on Saturday.

Here are five of the best players to watch out for in this exciting international competition:

Javier Hernandez Reveals His Pick For Ballon d’Or And He Is Not Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo might have enjoyed a phenomenal season but his former Real teammate and Bayern Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez has snubbed the Portugal international for the prestigious Ballon d’Or.

After playing an integral role in helping the Los Blancos win the La Liga for the first time since the 2011-12 season, Ronaldo scored a brilliant brace to inspire Real Madrid to a thumping 4-1 win over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final in Cardiff last Saturday(June 3) as the Spanish giants became the first-ever team to defend the title.

The brace not only helped him to score his 600th career goal but also saw him overtaking Barcelona star Lionel Messi to become the top scorer of the recently-concluded season. Ronaldo finished the tournament on 12 goals, one clear of Messi whose team lost to Juventus in the semifinal. Ronaldo began the Champions League on an unusual note, scoring only two goals till the last 16 stage and was nine adrift of Messi going into the quarter-finals.

However, the Portugal skipper hit the top gear just when it mattered the most as Real Madrid blew away all the opposition to claim a record 12th Champions League title. Ronaldo scored five against Bayern Munich in the quater-final, a hattrick against city rival Atletico Madrid before the brace against Juve. Before his heroics in Cardiff, Ronaldo had starred in the La Liga too, scoring a staggering 25 goals to help the Madrid-based outfit end their Liga drought.

Ronaldo’s sensational performances have more or less have convinced almost everyone that he is destined for the fifth Ballon d’Or of his career.

However, his former teammate Javier Hernandez, it seems, is not impressed by his exploits. The Mexico international, who had spent the 2014–15 season on loan to Real Madrid, feels Ronaldo’s teammate Luca Modric should win the coveted award.

Shortly after Real won the Champions League, ‘Chicharito’ took to Twitter to reveal his pick for this year’s Ballon d’Or.

“Ballon d’Or for Modric please!” Hernandez wrote.

Modric has undoubtedly played a huge role in Real’s brilliant season but it is highly unlikely that the Croatia international would pip Ronaldo for his maiden Ballon d’Or.

Watch: Chicharito Equals Mexico’s All-Time Goal Scoring Record

Mexico beat Costa Rica 2-0 in last night’s World Cup qualifying match, which sent El Tri to the top of the CONCACAF qualifying table.

Mexico are ever-presents at the World Cup, and it looks like they’ll be at the party in Russia in 2018 after last night’s win.

It was ultimately a routine win for El Tri, with a special highlight for their star player…

Javier Hernandez has had something of a mixed club career, what with his bizarre loan spell at Real Madrid and failure to succeed at Manchester United.

But as soon as he pulls on that green jersey for Mexico, Chicharito transforms into an unstoppable goleador.

He’s been eyeing the goalscoring record for some time now, and still just 28, he is probably going to make it unbreakable by the time he retires.

He managed to tie Jared Borgetti’s record by scoring his 46th goal for El Tri last night, meaning just one more goal will make the record his.

Watch Chicharito’s record-equaling goal below:

Hernandez currently plays for Bayer Leverkusen where he has scored 12 goals in 31 games for the German side.

It was Villalón who broke her silence recently during a fashion event that gave fans some clarity. “What hurt me the most was his disloyalty, I wasn’t expecting it, I was going to marry him,” she said. “There’s no relationship. We all make mistakes in relationships. I probably have made a lot.”

Following theVillalon’s comments about her split from the soccer star, Hernández posted a photo of himself with the following quote: “More powerful than the desire to succeed, is the courage to begin” Start as many times as necessary until you make it! #smile #blessed.” Many people on social media speculated that this was his reaction to what his former fiancée said to the media.

Major Transfer Blow: Chelsea Receive Last Minute Update From Long-Term Target’s Agent

Chelsea have received a major blow in their bid to sign former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez

Chelsea on the lookout for a forward with Michy Batshuayi linked with a loan move away from Stamford Bridge this month.

Hernandez scored an impressive 26 goals from 40 appearances last term after signing for Bayer Leverkusen from Manchester United in the summer of 2015.

However, the Mexico international has managed just seven goals from 23 games so far this season.

His struggles have led to talk that the striker is unsettled and keen on a £21million move away from Bundesliga.

But Hernandez’s agent Eduardo Hernandez has now angrily responded to those claims.

“First of all, the claim that Javier has a bad relationship with his team-mates and the club is a great lie,” his agent told La Aficion.

“Secondly, neither is it true that the club is allowing him to leave for 25 million euros.

“It all comes down to an answer that the club gave me: Javier was not for sale.

“This is a badly aimed report, badly done, with bad intentions. It’s only there to tarnish the image of Javier. He’s not even thinking about leaving the club.”

It is not all bad news for the Blues, with Hernandez’s agent also admitting clubs had enquired about his availability.

“It’s not that I’ve had offers,” he added.

“There are phone calls asking me about Javier’s situation, there are various clubs in various leagues who have asked about him, but the response is the same: I cannot determine his future without having spoken with the club with whom he currently has a contract.”
