Ferguson: We believed in Hernandez
30 Oct 2010 - 10:28:05
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was confident that Javier Hernandez would take the Premier League by storm after capturing him from Chivas Guadalajara in the summer.
The Mexico international has hit top gear in recent weeks, scoring four goals in his last four outings and he is set to feature alongside Dimitar Berbatov in the Red Devils' attack, with Tottenham Hotspur up next at Old Trafford on Saturday.
With Wayne Rooney ruled out for a longer period than first expected with his ankle problem and Michael Owen picking up a hamstring injury, Hernandez looks set for a prolonged spell in the first team, a situation that Ferguson has no qualms about.
"We are not surprised because we identified a lot about him before we signed him. We did a lot of work on him," said Ferguson.
"Seeing him in pre-season and training we thought he would do well. He is young and wants to learn and he comes from a really good football pedigree. He speaks the language and that is important.
"Everything is in his favour. We are all pleased. Everyone is really excited to have him at the club. He has done really well."
