In the week that marks Sir Alex Ferguson’s 25th year in charge of Manchester United, Javier Hernandez has spoken of his respect and admiration for the manager.
“He’s completely different,” Hernandez told Inside United. “You can’t compare him to anybody else. What’s impressed me most about him, and this is something I noticed from the first day I met him, is that he’s a very simple person. You can talk about all the things he’s won and all the years he’s been in charge but you wouldn’t know it if you watched him on the bench. Every game looks like it’s his first game for him. He’s so excited, so enthusiastic – he wants to win so much. That is key: he will never get bored of winning and he enjoys what he does. He’s also a really nice man. Every day he’ll ask me how I’m feeling, whether I’m okay, whether I need anything. He’s just an unbelievable person and he doesn’t treat you differently whether you’re on the pitch or off the pitch. He recognises that first you are a human being and then you are a football player. He knows that if you’re doing okay in your personal life then you’ll be okay in your profession.”
