Madrid: Real Madrid striker Javier Hernandez is delighted to be able to continue his career at what he considers to be the best club in the world.
Hernandez's situation changed from being a likely substitute at Manchester United for the coming season when he was loaned to Real Madrid at the end of the transfer window.
Hernandez is likely to be a backup for Karim Benzema, who is first choice striker, and speaking on Spanish TV early Wednesday morning, he was delighted with the chance.
"It's no pressure to be compared with Benzema and I know people will try to draw us as rivals, but that happened with Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie at Manchester United. There is no pressure as I have always been competitive," said Hernandez.
"There is no excuse in a club such as Real Madrid as your performances put you in your place. If you have big dreams you have to work hard to be at the level at the club. You can't just show you are a professional, you have to do it and show it to not disappoint those who show confidence in you," he added, saying that "playing for Real Madrid is the first miracle that has come true in my life."
Hernandez insisted that he backed Cristiano Ronaldo in the debate over whether the Portuguese striker is the best player in the world ahead of Lionel Messi and said he was an admirer of Fernando Torres and former Madrid striker, Raul Gonzalez.
Finally he gave a vote of confidence to under-fire Real Madrid goalkeeper, Iker Casillas.
"He has done everything as a keeper and he is mentally very strong," he concluded.
