Chicharito Targets Treble

 

Red hot ‘Chicharito’ says he and Manchester United are gunning for the Treble this season.

Mexican international striker Javier Hernandez scored a brace for United as they swatted aside Fulham in the FA Cup at the weekend.

The Red Devils are also clear at the top of the Premier League table, and qualified for the last-16 of the Champions League as their group winners.

Consequently, confidence and ambition are flowing through United’s veins in equal measure, prompting Chicharito to unveil the club’s lofty target for the season.

"All the people should know we want to win this one, the Champions League and the league,” Hernandez said after United’s win over Fulham.

“For [nearly] 10 years, all the players have been here, they have not won this Cup. The gaffer, my team-mates and myself, we want to win this Cup. We have a lot of hunger to win and not to be distracted by the league and the Champions League. We're very happy, we're very pleased because we scored four goals and we got through in the Cup.

"I want to win all three. I want to win the Treble. That's on our minds. We need to think game by game, get the points in the league and then get through in the Champions League and the FA Cup."

Meanwhile, Chicharito has scored 14 goals so far this season, and is United’s second-top scorer.

He is giving United manager Alex Ferguson the best kind of headache, as he challenges players like Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck for a place alongside top scorer, Robin van Persie.

"It is a terrible dilemma with that lad because sometimes I have to leave him out to bring Robin van Persie in," Fergie said of Hernandez.

"We regard him so highly. He is a fantastic professional, with an unbelievable attitude to the game. He never stops running and it is exactly the same in every single training session."
