The Da Silva brothers have been very impressed with the start Javier Hernandez has made to his Manchester United career.
“He’s a great player,” said Rafael. “He has a lot of room to develop further, like us, but he started well and has been important for the team. I often mix with him, but I speak more English than him.”
Fabio has also joined in praising the Mexican striker, claiming United have spent well.
“He is loved by the fans, they already love him,” he said. “You can see that Manchester hires the right people and chooses very well.”
