Chicharito hails competition amongst young stars at United

Hernandez has highlighted the young players at United, are key to maintaining the hunger and competition within the squad.

With Danny Welbeck having made an impressive start to the season, and the success of Phil Jones, Chicarito spoke to Inside United about the mix of the youth and experience within the club, as well as the healthy rivalry between the players.

“You look around on the training pitch and there are almost 30 players but only 11 can start a game so it’s tough. It’s not a problem. I’ve come to learn that there will always be competition, at any club”

“On the training ground everybody wants to do their best, they want to prove what they can do and earn a spot in the team. We have a lot of young players who are hungry to do well and that helps inspire the rest of the squad”

“They may have been here for many years and won a lot of trophies but they still have a lot of desire. I think we have a good mix of youth and experience and that will be very important for us.”

    @Fred I also saw this documentary, was before of Word Cup, her sister looks like Chico. ha ha.
    @Cedars Hola!!!:)

  4. Fred says:

    LOL Fletch. I think that kit is meant to be a tribute to Sir Alex. Here’s some more pics of it:

    No matter the intentions behind it, it’s a shocker imho. Hopefully it’s an elaborate ploy to throw the bootleggers off the scent of the real kit.

    LOL yes Soren, she’s quite pretty. She lives in Manchester now. I haven’t seen her in town yet, but I’m still hopeful! :P

  6. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Fred, Yup, thats them. Sends shivers down the spine that kit. Berba will have to leave then. Not even he can make that kit look GQ !

    Hola indeed my good friend! Hope you are well….. Have to retire for a much needed nap

    Catch you guys later

  8. Fred says:

    Sweet dreams, Cedars. :)

    @Soren – his father also looks just like him, but also looked a little bit like Berbatov when he was younger imo. This is why I had a feeling that Chicharito would forge a good relationship with Berba!

  9. soren says:

    @Fred Yes, beautiful siblings, say hello to my sister in law ha ha.
    @Cedars Sweet Dreams!!
