Chicharito: Happy with United, But Deserving of Additional Minutes

For heaven’s sake David Moyes, keep ahold of Chicharito at all costs.  Although Moyes may have a few other striking options in mind, and already has a few in his pocket with the likes of Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Shinji Kagawa, it seems crucial for the newly appointed Manchester United manager to keep the Mexican international at Old Trafford.

According to Chicharito’s agent Eduardo Hernandez, the Manchester United front man who only saw limited minutes and numerous cameo appearances yet he still remains ”very happy” with United.  The players agent told reporters ”He’s very happy at Manchester United.  Javier has been there three years and has won the league twice.  Not many can say they’ve achieved that.”

Rightly so.  However, if Chicharito is to continue onwards in his development as a striker and with his place with United, he’s certainly going to need to see more minutes.  Under Moyes this could change as RVP may be given more rest especially if Wayne Rooney is to depart the club this summer.

In his first season with United (2010-11) Chicharito did exceptionally well, and in the following season beat out an in form Dimitar Bervatov – and even started in the Champions League final which the Red Devils eventually lost to Barcelona.

With the arrival of Kagawa this season, Chicharito fell even farther in the pecking order in Sir Alex Ferguson’s starting XI as the Japanese international was able to feature both out wide, and in an attacking midfielder role.  As for Chicharito, his style of play only suits United best when he is up top where he typically floats amongst the last defender of the opposition.

The continued praise of both Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson despite the limited minutes is stellar and that of a true footballer.  A man who could have very easily voiced his frustration throughout the season, remained composed and worked hard for his chances.

Nearly every moment that the Mexican was on the pitch, he brought life into the United side as he could finish superbly with nearly any part of his body, and also move off the ball like no other.  The current United frontman is a work horse when it comes to his commitment to getting forward and finding open space – something that Moyes’ side next season could do a deal of good with.

At 25, he’s nearing what’s suppose to be the best years of his career.  Deserving of more starts with United, if Moyes cannot promise this, it may be time for him to move on to continue on with his development and strengthen Mexico’s chances for qualification to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.  If given additional minutes with United, supporters and managers alike could benefit from the loads of goals that Chicharito is capable of.  Even more so, Moyes could be in the best predicament a manager could be put in of which striker to play – Chicharito, Welbeck, RVP, Rooney, or Kagawa.
