Redknapp: Man Utd striker Chicharito just like Owen

Former Tottenham and Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp has likened Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez to his former Reds teammate Michael Owen.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp wrote: "Javier Hernandez - or Chicharito to his friends - reminds me of a young Michael Owen.

"He's not as quick and doesn't have that explosive pace but he has that same fox-in-the-box movement and I like the way he celebrates his goals, like each one is the first he has ever scored.

"While he is still learning the game, he is like a breath of fresh air for United at this time."
