Chicharito: I don’t have to prove anything

Javier Hernandez Bayer Leverkusen

Javier Hernandez does not feel he has a point to prove when he returns to England with Bayer Leverkusen tonight.

The striker left Manchester United for Germany in 2015 after largely making his name as a substitute at Old Trafford.

Asked if he felt pressure to perform at Wembley, he said: “No, definitely not. Any minutes I had on the pitch at Manchester United, I tried to do my best. Thankfully, the numbers are positive for me.

“When I left I had the fourth-best record in history of minutes and goals in the Premier League. That’s what I had at United.

“I also left a lot of good friends and memories in the Premier League. In all parts of life things can be better or worse but I enjoyed it a lot.

“I got a lot of experience and now I am at one of the best teams in Germany.”
