Man Utd striker Rooney: Chicharito destined to score winner

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney reckons Javier Hernandez is destined to score the winner tonight against Barcelona.

Chicharito has scored 20 goals in his first season in Europe.

"The season he has had is incredible," Rooney told manutd.com.

"Nobody expected this from him. He is a nice lad who works very hard in training. We often stay out a bit longer and do a bit of finishing work together in order to try and improve.

"He is playing every week now and scoring a lot of goals.

"What he has done is quite incredible. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up scoring the winning goal in the final to top it off."
