Javier Hernandez Wants to Bounce Back with Treble

Manchester United Old Trafford

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez wants to bounce back from last season’s title nightmare by grabbing a dream treble.

The young Mexican hitman spent his ­summer brooding over the Reds Devils’ failure to beat neighbours City to the Premier League crown.

He admits losing their title in such ­spectacular fashion on the final day made the pain even worse.

But he is determined to put the ­heartache behind him and spur United on to new heights.

And for Hernandez, the best way to cure his title blues is by lifting THREE ­trophies next May.

It is not uncharted territory, as ­Manchester United are one of only six clubs to have won a Treble, comprising the European Cup, title and FA Cup, with the others being Celtic, Ajax, PSV, ­Barcelona and Inter Milan.

United achieved theirs in 1999 when David ­Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Roy Keane were the powerhouses in the United team.

Hernandez said: “My real dream is to win the Treble.

“I want to win the league, I want to win the Champions League plus I want to win the FA Cup.

“I think the Treble is the most complicated thing in the world for any club to win.

“So that is my dream, to lift all of those ­trophies in one season.’’ 

Hernandez is using the frustration of last season’s potless ­campaign to fire him up ahead of the opening-day clash at Goodison Park against Everton.

He said: “The disappointment of last season will spur us on to win.

“This is a good team. We have lots of ­experienced players but also lots of young ­players who want to do their best and have an opportunity in the first team.

“I think that combination can change what was a disappointing season last year into a good one this time around.’’

And the Mexican star, 24, is confident he will improve on last term’s goal return of 12 after boss Sir Alex Ferguson snapped up a ­playmaker.

Hernandez reckons the summer capture of Shinji Kagawa will increase his number of chances at Old Trafford.

Kagawa arrived from Borussia Dortmund in a £17million deal and impressed on United’s pre-season tour.

Hernandez added: “Shinji had a great record at Dortmund. It’s not luck that he played a lot of games and they won the Bundesliga twice in a row.

“He is a big player for Japan as well, so I’m sure he is going to contribute a lot to the team this ­season.’’
