Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has indicated that he will look to leave Old Trafford this summer in search of first team football.

The 26-year-old, who has been linked with Tottenham, has struggled for game-time at United since the signing of Robin van Persie two years ago, and he dropped to the bench for Mexico’s World Cup opener against Cameroon.

Hernandez says he is sick of warming the bench for club and country and insists he has no desire to play the role of “super-sub” any longer.

He said: “I’ve never seen myself as a sub and I don’t like being one, and believe me, I am tired of a lot of people seeing me that way, as a ‘super-sub’.

“I’m a player that has made a difference as a starter.”
