Manchester United: 3 Reasons Sir Alex Ferguson Should Hold on to Chicharito

Chicharito has five EPL goals this season, three less than Robin van Persie and three more than Wayne Rooney.

Earlier this month, Javier Hernandez, or Chicharito as we like to call him, drew the dreaded "super-sub" tag by pundits all over the footballing world. 

The Mexican international came off the bench in the second half on Nov. 10 against Aston Villa when Manchester United found themselves trailing 2-0. 

Chicharito fired one past Shay Given to get United on the board, then forced Villa defender Ron Vlaar into an own goal. 

He scored the game winner in the final few minutes of the game with a trademark header, effectively gaining United three points single-handedly. 

It was arguably his best performance ever, and it only came from 45 minutes of play. 

A couple of weeks before that game, rumors were rife about Atletico Madrid tendering a bid for the 24-year-old. 

Since then, Chicharito has made a considerable case proving his worth to Sir Alex Ferguson. He's been professional on and off the pitch, and Sir Alex would be foolish to let him go in January.
