Chicharito dreams of winning treble with Manchester United

Manchester United striker Chicarito has revealed that he dreams of being part of a team that emulates the Red Devils' famous 1999 treble-winning side.

Sir Alex Ferguson won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in a single season shortly before the turn of the millennium and the Mexico international has set his sights on repeating the accomplishment.

The 24-year-old insisted that it is trophies, and not goals, that drive him on as a footballer and said that he would be the "happiest man in the world" to secure the treble even if he did not score once.

"My real dream – and I swear it is not about scoring the biggest goal – is to win the treble," Chicharito told the club's official website.

"One year at least, I want to win the league, I want to win the Champions League – we were so close in my first year – and I want to win the FA Cup.

"I think the treble is the most complicated thing in the world for any club to win. So that is my dream, to lift all those trophies in one season.

"If I have a season where I play a lot but didn't score one goal, but I can lift those trophies, I will be the happiest man in the world."

United conceded the league title in devastating fashion last season as Manchester City completed a dramatic comeback on the final day of the campaign to take the championship on goal difference.

City were trailing 2-1 against QPR heading into injury time at the Etihad Stadium but Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero scored in the dying minutes to secure an incredible 3-2 victory.

"We need to learn from that disappointment," the striker admitted. "It was a very strange season because we know that United have always won trophies in their history, and last season we only won the Community Shield at the start of the season and then we didn't win anything.

"We know that last term was a very disappointing campaign because we saw other teams that have a great rivalry with us win trophies.

"So we need to come back to our best as a team, as a club and try to win every competition that we play. It was very disappointing, but we need to look forward.

"The philosophy of Manchester United is to keep playing, to keep enjoying, to keep working and to keep fighting.

"I think that's going to help us as a team because all the experienced players and all the young ones want to learn and to keep fighting because we don't want a repeat of last season."
