Sir Alex Ferguson has praised Javier Hernandez for scoring his second goal in two games since joining United (even if one of those were for his former club) and has likened him to red legend, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“The boy was terrific,” said Ferguson. “He scored a great goal and his all-round play was superb. He reminds me a lot of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He has two quick feet and pace to burn. And he knows where the goal is. I think he will be a marvellous addition to our squad. The other players have remarked how good he is and what a great finisher he is. They’re all supportive of him and have welcomed him to the club. I think he has a great future with us. The 4-3-3 formation suits us in some games, particularly in Europe because it’s important to guard against the counter-attack and keep possession. Chicharito can play as a lone striker, there’s no question about that. He did it in the World Cup for Mexico. But there are big possibilities of a partnership with Wayne Rooney and other players.”
