Mexican star hoping to shine at Man Utd

Mexican forward Javier Hernandez admits it is a dream come true to join Manchester United.

Hernandez will join United in a £10million deal from Chivas Guadalajara on 1st July.

“Suddenly I’m going to be playing with the players I know from PlayStation and television,” he said.

“I’m living a dream and I thank God I’m living it. I got goose-bumps when I realised I would be joining Manchester United.

“These are the things that you dream about. I longed for a move to Europe when I was a kid watching lots of football on television.

“I’m just full of gratitude to those who helped me accomplish this.”

“I was at the Munich game and I think the whole atmosphere, the way the fans express themselves, the way the country lives for football, it’s very hard to describe,” he added.

“I just wanted to jump on the pitch and start playing. The support is amazing, whether the team is wining or losing, and the quality of the players and the Premier League is well known.

“Football in England is more developed than in Mexico and the culture of the country means that the football is more about playing fair and honestly.

“Everyone is doing their best to make sure you get good football on the pitch. I like that way of thinking.”
