Ferguson can't hide his excitement about his new Mexican signing ahead of their clash with Chelsea.
"He is going to do all right, that boy," Ferguson said. "He has a good brain, great feet and he is quick and reminds me of [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer; he has a chance. There have not been many who play outside Mexico but that is because they are well paid.
"It is a very wealthy league. It's [also] a tough league - they get big crowds in Mexico - and [that's why] I've never had any doubts about Mexican players. They are mentally and physically tough. So he has come from a good breeding ground in terms of players who can adapt."
The surprise was the stealth with which United went about that piece of pre-World Cup business.
"We just did remarkably well that no one found out about it," Ferguson agreed. "That was brilliant and the [Chivas] president proved to be a man of real substance. We asked them to keep it quiet and they kept it quiet. Nobody knew; not a soul, we had a lawyer and chief scout down there for three weeks to get the deal done and that was the right thing to do."
