Man Utd striker Chicharito has plenty of derby experience from Mexico

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez says he has drawn plenty of derby experience from his time in Mexico.

Chicharito joined United last year from Chivas.

"We have two big derbies in Guadalajara," he told United Review. For Chivas, the one against Club America is like United v Liverpool - the rivalry is down to success and trophies.

"But the games against Club Atlas are like United v City: a local rivalry. They were huge games, and I felt more passionately about the Atlas ones because it was for local pride and I had played against those teams all through my youth years. Derbies are unbelievable in Mexico - there's so much noise and colour, and all week that's the only thing people speak about."
