Hernandez plays it cool on new boss

Javier Hernandez is making no commitment to remain a Hammer under new boss Manuel Pellegrini.

The striker is understood to be bang in the manager’s plans for next season as a partner to Marko Arnautovic  after a playing a disappointing number of games under Slaven Bilic and David Moyes.

But as he prepared with the Mexican squad to take on Wales on Tuesday morning he was in no mood to comment on his situation.

He said: “Of course I am a West Ham player still, but we’ll see. Right now what can I tell you? I’m glad there’s a new manager? I’m sad there’s a new manager? It’s not the moment to speak about this. My mind is 100 per cent on the World Cup.”

Asked if Pellegrini – who led Manchester City to a Premier League and Capital One Cup double in 2014 – was a good appointment by West Ham, Hernandez replied: “I don’t know.”

  1. Sounds to me like he is blaming the club for the way Moyes treated him.A lot of players would give their right arm to play under Pellegrini.This guy “don’t know”,he is obviuosly not committed so get rid.

  2. This is journalism, will wait to see the context before making any snap judgements could be a lot of reasons why if true he answered that way.

  3. If it’s true that Pellegrini has said everyone will have the chance to prove themselves before he sells anyone, then everyone is in his plans right now.
    If Hernandes then believes he has to prove himself, perhaps it makes him less than certain.
    It will depend on what he can do other than score goals.
