Mexico star striker Javier "Chicharito," Hernandez says he wants to quit West Ham in January to boost his chances of playing at this summer's World Cup. Javier Hernandez has been starved of regular minutes under David Moyes and his agent Eduardo Hernandez said just last month that he needed more playing time than usual.
But while the striker confirmed his desire to depart from the club, now that the window is closed he remains committed to the club.
"Yes, it was the case that I wanted to leave," Hernandez told the Daily Mirror. "Not because I don't like West Ham, but because I need to have minutes on the pitch. "The World Cup is just around the corner and I want to play for my country. But you can see that, even though my agent says I want to go, I have been doing everything I can in a West Ham shirt to help the team in every aspect of the game.
"Against opposition Bournemouth I scored a goal in a 1-1 draw, I tried to play pretty well in the FA Cup a 2-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic and, in the last game, against Crystal Palace [a 1-1 draw], I tried to do my best in all sphere. I am a very professional guy and I want to do that all my life.
"Words can come and go but Your acts are going to speak for themselves.
"Now that the window is closed here and I am here and trying to achieve the main goals for the club, which is to be safe from relegation from any cost. Then, in the summer, we will see what to do."
