Man Utd icon Whiteside confident Hernandez can handle pressure

Manchester United icon Norman Whiteside believes Javier Hernandez can handle the pressure of Old Trafford.

Whiteside has been impressed by how quickly the Mexican has settled at United.

"He had a great World Cup and looks like a really good prospect," he told the Manchester Evening News. "He's a natural finisher with good speed, which is crucial in the Premier League.

"So many people would struggle to cope with the pressure of a move to United, but I don't think the manager will have any worries about his temperament.

"He showed in the World Cup that he doesn't get over-awed by the big occasion - so he shouldn't have any problems playing in front of massive crowds at Old Trafford. He looks like he was a real find."
