Manchester United star brothers Rafael and Fabio da Silva have both heaped praise on young forward Javier Hernandez, arguing that his signing is a testament to United management.

“He’s a great player,” Rafael told reporters.

“He has a lot of room to develop further, like us, but he started well and has been important for the team.

“I often mix with him, but I speak more English than him.”


Fabio also praised the 22 year old, telling reporters that Manchester United are clearly going in the right direction with which players they choose to bring to Old Trafford.

“He is loved by the fans, they already love him,” he said.

“You can see that Manchester hires the right people and chooses very well.”

Hernandez came to Manchester United last summer, and scored in his first appearance for the club. The forward is currently the second leading goal scorer for United, behind Dimitar Berbatov, and the fifth highest goal scorer in the League with 11 league goals.
