Mexican striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez managed to get on the scoresheet during his Copa del Rey debut against Cornellà and assured that he will not waste the opportunities that he is given.
“I am not going to talk about that controversy,” said Hernandez about his secondary role at Real Madrid. “I will try to show my quality every chance I get. I work to take advantage of these opportunities and to lift the Real Madrid crest as high as possible.”
“The important thing was to get a good win in the first leg. The manager asked us to be professional and respectful with every opponent we face. That means playing as if we were up against Barcelona,” continued Little Pea.
“James passed me the ball, I attempted a one-two with Benzema and then I just shot towards goal and thanks to God it went in,” said Hernandez of his third goal with Los Merengues.
