Man Utd fullback Evra: Humble Chicharito a goal machine

Patrice Evra cannot speak highly enough of Manchester United teammate Javier Hernandez.

Chicharito struck 20 goals for United in his first season in Europe last term.

Evra told manutd.com: "I must give Chicha great credit because it's not easy in the first year. I remember my first six months being very difficult, but he settled in so quickly. He fully deserves his award. He's a big professional who works very hard. I think he's had a great season, not just because of his ability but because of his humility as well.

"He said in his acceptance speech how when he joined he'd hoped to play a bit with the first-team but had expected to mostly play with the Reserves. That humility has helped him go far and he deserves it."

Evra added: "Seriously, he is just a goal machine. He scores so many in training. He reminds me of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so much."
