Rafael has bigged up his team mate and reckons the young Mexican will contribute to some success this season.
“I can tell you from experience he is incredibly fast and he certainly knows what to do with the ball at his feet,” said Rafael. “He had a very good World Cup for Mexico and I believe he will be a very important signing for us this season. We did not win the Premier League or the Champions League last season and the fans will be expecting us to do better. We will need everybody playing well and I’m sure Javier will play his part.”
