The final game of their overseas tour against Chivas in Guadalajara was arranged as part of Hernandez's £7million move from the Mexican club, and the striker they call Chicharito will play the first half for United and the second for his old club.
"It's a nice tribute to Chivas," said Ferguson.
"We were lucky with Hernandez because we identified him in enough time to sign him before the World Cup started. If we'd have waited until afterwards it would have cost us about two or three times the money. The scouting department did a really good job there."
