Ferguson reveals more 'Chicharitos' being lined up for Man Utd

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he's planning to unearth more players like bargain buy Javier Hernandez in 2012. Chicharito has been a revelation since his arrival last year from Chivas.

"It's down to good scouting," said Ferguson. "We're quite good at these things and we're doing not bad. There's a couple of players at the moment we're looking at who could be the same type as Hernandez, you know, so we do well at that.

"In the modern-day game, it's obvious where the top players are now because there's less and less of them.

"If you make a bad buy, sometimes the scouts have done work on it and you've maybe only seen them a couple of times, then that responsibility will lie on your shoulders very heavily.

"We've made a couple of bad buys ourselves over the years but, in the main, we've done alright."
