Chicharito hoping to haunt Man Utd at Old Trafford

Javier Hernandez

West Ham striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez is looking for a positive return to Old Trafford when he faces his former club Manchester United.

The Mexico international completed his move to the Irons this week and will be facing the Red Devils on August 13 when they kick off their Premier League campaign.

Hernandez played for Manchester United between 2010 and 2015, scoring 59 goals in 157 appearances in all competitions, but he is eager to help the Hammers get one over his former employers.

“Of course I will be very happy to go back there and play,” he told West Ham TV. “Hopefully I can do as well in that stadium for West Ham as I did when I played for United.

“And hopefully we can get the three points to make a great start to the season.”
