Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has given his young Mexican striker Javier Hernandez a vote of confidence ahead of United’s clash against Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok stadium.
The diminutive Hernandez, who last year finished his first season in England with 20 goals in all competitions, is set to make his first start of the season today, with Danny Welbeck ruled out by injury.
The United manager has little doubt that Hernandez will continue last seasons’ rich vein of form in the coming months.
“I don’t anticipate any problem in the second season because when you have that kind of quality, you are going to be a problem for defenders.”
The United manager also added:
“When you analyse the boy, his movement in the penalty box is absolutely exceptional,”
“Of all the players I’ve had, his awareness of decision making and getting space is as good as any.”
United fans will be counting on ‘the little Pea’ to again help the red side of Manchester retain the Barclays Premier League, starting with today’s game against Bolton.
