Former Manchester United striker Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez has given a recent interview that has an insight into his time at Old Trafford and how his spell with the Red Devils transformed him into a better player and a more complete striker. The Mexico international striker was a goal poacher and a proven goalscorer who had the instincts of a proper number nine at Old Trafford and he would go on to enjoy a very decent career at the club before eventually leaving in 2014.

Hernandez was one of the numerous brilliant signings by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson who would go on to evolve from average players into world-class stars. The transformation of Hernandez was one that required a lot of patience and hard work as the Mexican encountered inadequate playing time problems under the former Scottish manager during his days at the club.

Despite how good he was, the former West Ham United forward was still a bit-part player at Manchester United and was largely used as an impact sub during his time there. But even though he was usually starting games from the bench, whenever he was called upon, he was sure to always deliver the goods.

He has now revealed in an interview that even though a lot of people thought he was being mistreated by always starting on the bench, he understood the manager's decision and would respect it. He said that period was an instrumental one in his career because it shaped him into becoming a hungry striker and goalscorer.

He revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson is the best manager that he ever worked with because he not only had the quality to manage players but also to manage human beings as well and those qualities made him stand out among others.
