The Mexico striker has spent three seasons under Ferguson since arriving from Guadalajara, and 35 of his 75 Premier League appearances have come as a substitute.

Despite that statistic Hernandez told TV Azteca in his home country he considers it "a blessing" to have worked with English football's most successful manager, who this week announced he will retire at the end of the season after over 26 years in charge.

"When I retire it will be satisfying to say that I was one of Sir Alex Ferguson's boys," he said.

"But it's more than an anecdote for me. I see it as an achievement and a blessing. It's a source of pride to say I was with one of the best coaches in history.

"Something that impresses me is that he never lost his competitiveness. In spite of everything he won he continues to be hungry. He's a winner."

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
