Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has heaped praise on Sir Alex Ferguson, claiming he was ready to kill himself for him, if needed.
In an interview with the Manchester United podcast, as quoted by Transfer Market Web, Javier Hernandez has spoken up about his experience working with Sir Alex Ferguson. The Mexican striker has claimed that he could do anything for his former Manchester United manager, heaping praise on the legendary Scot.
Javier Hernandez spent five years at Manchester United, enjoying a largely unforgettable spell from 2010 to 2015. During this stint, he was largely utilised as an impact substitute, coming off the bench to make a big difference time and again.
In particular, Sir Alex Ferguson got the best out of the veteran Mexican striker, who has been quite a journeyman since leaving Manchester United. At times, Hernandez, affectionately called Chicharito, drew comparisons with current Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well due to the kind of impact he could make.
Now, Hernandez has spoken about his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson and he had nothing but words of praise for the legendary manager, claiming the legendary Scott treated him and everyone around him so well that he could even “kill himself” on the pitch for him.
Hernandez said while speaking on the Manchester United podcast, “The way he presented himself and the way he treated you like a human. The way he treated my family, for me it was like, yeah, I will kill myself for this manager inside the pitch, for sure. For sure!”
“If he treats my family that way, man, I will vomit after every game if it helps him to achieve in games and championships. He was an amazing man. It’s hard to believe.”
From his comments, it is clear to see just how much Javier Hernandez respects Sir Alex Ferguson to this day. The impact of the former Manchester United manager could not be seen post his retirement as he struggled to make a similar impact under the tutelage of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. As for Manchester United, they are now in the Premier League title battle and it remains to be seen if they can lift the trophy after nearly a decade.
