Paul Scholes rates new Manchester United teammate Javier Hernandez as a pure goal scorer.

From what Scholes has seen of the 22-year-old has had him reminiscing about former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"He looks like an out-and-out goalscorer," said the 35-year-old midfielder. "That's not to say he can't play outside the box as well, because when the ball comes up to him his touch is good as well.

"But he's a threat in behind defenders, and hopefully he'll score a lot of goals this year.

"People say he's like Ole, and I thought that the first time I saw him in training.

"We did a finishing session and everything was in the bottom corner. He scores whenever he gets a chance.

"He comes on and looks lively. He's adapted to the pace of the game already. He's capable of scoring goals and if he's anything like Ole, we'll take that."
