In the light of negative recent press about the future of Manchester United, after the headlines concerning the debt at the club connected with the Glazer ownership, the Wayne Rooney contract and transfer saga and the lack of major transfer signings over the past couple of seasons, many senior figures at Manchester United have decided to speak out and say that, actually, the future is bright at the club and the media have it all wrong. This week Gary Neville has applauded Javier Hernandez, the young Mexican striker signed in the summer before the 2010 FIFA World Cup, for his talent and work rate.
Gary Neville, the current club captain and one of the best right backs in the history of the English Premiership, said that the young Mexican has all the attributes necessary to succeed at the club and is prepared for the challenge both physically and mentally. Sir Alex Ferguson, the long serving Manchester United manager, reiterated the compliments afforded by his captain towards the Mexican by insisting that Javier Hernandez is doing everything correctly at the club in order to increase his chances of success. The manager stated that the young forward is the first player on the training field in the morning and the last one to leave it in the afternoon, intimating that it is his hard work that is paying off and because of the extra effort he is reaping the rewards on the pitch.
Wes Brown, another Manchester United right back, has also complimented the Mexican and the young stars at the club stressing that the future looks rosy. Speaking generally about the likes of Bebe, Javier Hernandez, Gabriel Obertan, Chris Smalling, Fabio and Rafael, Wes Brown was saying there is an abundance of young talent at the squad and that it is inevitable that some of it will develop into consistent world class performances. Wes Brown played on Tuesday night in the Carling Cup alongside some of the younger stars, like the French Gabriel Obertan, the Portuguese Bebe, the English Chris Smalling and the Brazilian Fabio, and was impressed with their performances.
During the match, which Manchester United won 3-2 courtesy of a late winner from the much praised young Mexican Javier Hernandez, Bebe scored his first goal for the club since his arrival in the summer, although his goal did arrive courtesy of a rather large deflection. His performance, on the whole, was nevertheless very impressive considering it was his first start for the club. Javier Hernandez scored a late winner in the match just as he did a couple of days previously at the Britannia Stadium against Stoke City, which Manchester United won 2-1.
