Hernandez believes De Gea was the real hero in United’s 3-2 victory over Stoke on Saturday. The Mexico striker scored the winner in that game.
Hernandez told the club’s official website: “He was wonderful.
“Like I always say, we are a team and there are no heroes, but in some games there are players who make the difference and David was the one on Saturday.
“He’s a wonderful goalkeeper, for me he’s probably the best one in the world.
“People don’t like to say that but, for me, he probably is. David and Edwin van der Sar are two of the best goalkeepers I have trained with – wonderful. Same level, same style and David is improving day by day.”
