Javier Hernandez's sensational first season as a Manchester United player has ended in yet more glory, as the young striker inspired Mexico to victory in the Gold Cup final.

El Tri triumphed 4-2 over the USA, having fallen two goals behind, with Hernandez turning provider - assisting Pablo Barrera's equaliser - to trigger a dramatic turnaround against the host nation.

Hernandez also ended the tournament with two personal accolades - the Golden Boot for his seven goals, as well as the award for the Gold Cup's Most Valuable Player.

The 23-year-old will now reportedly be given a month off by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in order to recuperate for the new season after a hectic campaign.

A year to the day, Chicharito ended his World Cup sojourn with Mexico before making 45 appearances for United last season, and Ferguson is keen to handle the 20-goal man with care.


Hernandez, however, is feeling as energetic as ever thanks an intense training programme at Carrington he has been undertaking since securing a switch to Old Trafford last summer.

“I work really hard in Manchester,” Hernandez said. “I get up at 8am, I eat breakfast and I go to the training session where I work so hard and I do extra work in the gym. I was educated by my parents in that way.

“If you want something in your life, you have to work hard. I know football is a job, but I am enjoying it so much.”
