A lack of game time at Manchester United is frustrating Javier Hernandez, according to Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera.
Hernandez has made 27 appearances in all competitions for United this season but only 10 have been from the start with the 25-year-old Mexican forward having only begun four English Premier League encounters.
United manager David Moyes has preferred to select Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck up front since arriving at Old Trafford.
Herrera recently spoke to Hernandez during a tour to meet with Mexico’s European-based players.
“He seemed well but he is a bit frustrated because he doesn’t play despite training well and the truth is that when he does play, he makes a huge effort on the pitch,” Herrera told Raza Deportiva.
“He is a bit frustrated because the current manager doesn’t give him many chances, but he is committed and doing what he can to become a starter.
“He likes to work and likes to show determination to achieve his goal.”
Since Herrera took over as Mexico’s head coach in October, he has only picked Hernandez once in four matches.
