Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his delight after confirmation that Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez has put pen to paper on a new five-year deal at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old Mexican international, known as 'Chicharito' to his Red Devils teammates extends his deal with the blessing of his manager, who took another opportunity to praise the impact he has made since moving to England - comparing him to club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"The last player I remember making an impact as big and as quickly as Javier is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he reminds me of Ole a lot," Ferguson told the club's official website.

"His talent for creating space in the box and his finishing ability mark him out as a natural goalscorer. Off the pitch, he is a pleasure to manage. He works very hard and is a popular member of the squad."


Earlier this month, Hernandez's agent revealed that after his impressive debut season, a new deal was in the offing, and that terms had been agreed in principle. But now that the contract has been officially signed, the striker explained he was thrilled to commit his long-term future.

"Playing for Manchester United has been a dream come true for me," Hernandez enthused. "I never expected my first year to go so well and I'm delighted to commit my future to United.

"To win a title and appear in a Champions League final was fantastic. I'm looking forward to helping my team-mates as we bid to win more trophies for this great club."
