Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez’s two-goal and match-winning performance against Stoke City at the weekend for Manchester United could give manager Alex Ferguson the ideal headache.
Two thirds of United fans have yet to make up their mind on whether to forgive and forget the whole Rooney saga, Sky Sports reported from a Manchester Evening News poll, and with Hernandez and Berbatov on song is there an argument that the England man should have to wait to get his place back when his fitness is resolved?
A bit of healthy competition could be exactly what Rooney needs to rediscover his lethal goalscoring touch of last season.
Hernandez has shown that sort of ruthlessness regularly since it was announced in April that he was moving to United for the new season.
