Man Utd hero Hernandez: Friends still rib me for threatening to quit

Manchester United ace Javier Hernandez admits mates back home in Mexico rib him for thinking about quitting just three years ago.

Hernandez, 22, is willing to be patient following a dark spell at his old club Chivas in 2007.

He told The Sun: "I was depressed. There were many crazy ideas in my head. I doubted my ability. I thought about quitting but my family told me that would be a mistake.

"My friends are still sarcastic, saying, 'You wanted to quit and look where you are now'."
