Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits he'd hate to have to man-mark Javier Hernandez.

Ferdinand is already on record saying Chicharito's movement off the ball is the best he's seen.

He told manutd.com: "Yeah, for sure, because not a lot of strikers make the sorts of runs he does. It’s physically demanding – you have to be really fit to make those movements for 90 minutes.

"If I was a coach I’d be telling every young striker that he should take note of how Chicharito plays because that’s what you have to do if you want to be a top player. It will certainly give you a head start."
