New signing Javier Hernandez has spoken very fondly about his move to Manchester United. Having completed a £10million move from Chivas Guadalajara, Javier confesses he can’t believe he will be playing alongside players he knows from the PlayStation.
“Suddenly I’m going to be playing with the players I know from PlayStation and television,” he said. “I’m living a dream and I thank God I’m living it. I got goose-bumps when I realised I would be joining Manchester United. These are the things that you dream about. I longed for a move to Europe when I was a kid watching lots of football on television. I’m just full of gratitude to those who helped me accomplish this.”
Hernandez was at Old Trafford for our victory over Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which saw us knocked out on away goals.
“I was at the Munich game and I think the whole atmosphere, the way the fans express themselves, the way the country lives for football, it’s very hard to describe,” he said. “I just wanted to jump on the pitch and start playing. The support is amazing, whether the team is wining or losing, and the quality of the players and the Premier League is well known. Football in England is more developed than in Mexico and the culture of the country means that the football is more about playing fair and honestly. Everyone is doing their best to make sure you get good football on the pitch. I like that way of thinking.”
