Man Utd star Chicharito amazed by English hospitality

Javier Hernandez admits Manchester United fans have helped him settle in England.

Chicharito says the way he and his family have been welcomed by the locals has touched him.

He told Univision: "They're very nice. Honestly, people here have always treated me marvelously. I'm totally grateful. Obviously, like all the people in my country, but here, really, they've made me feel as if I'd come from the training academy here.

"They never saw me as just another foreigner. Rather, to the contrary, since I arrived, and thank God I started to play, everybody, a fondness, a support. Last year people also voted for an award given by the fans to the best player of the last tournament, and they all, the majority of the fans voted for me. So, I believe that the fans here in England have been incredible towards me."
