Robin van Persie loves Chicharito's enthusiasm

Robin van Persie has expressed his admiration for Javier ‘Cicharito’ Hernandez regarding his positive attitude around Manchester United.

You will have to go pretty far to find someone that has met Hernandez that will dislike his infectious personality, a thought that is expressed through-out Manchester United with players and fans.

Javier Hernandez never complains when starting on the bench, knowing that when he is called upon from Sir Alex Ferguson, he will be ready.

The Manchester Derby was no different as Hernandez was selected on the bench and was an unused substitute in United’s 3-2 win over their near rivals.

The positivity of our very own little pea is rubbing off on Robin van Persie, when asked by MUTV if Hernandez and fellow young striker Danny Welbeck could learn from him, the derby match-winner said:

“It goes both ways, I can learn from them as well.

“For example, I love Chicharito’s enthusiasm. I love how he plays and trains and does his work off the pitch after training.

“A couple of weeks ago he wasn’t playing as much, but he was in the gym every day doing extra work, and that sets a big example for everyone.

“Danny, too. He’s not playing in his favourite position at the moment but we need him and he’s working hard.

“So when you have four strikers being so professional, it sets the tone for the others. Everyone realises we are all in it together and we all need to do our bit.”

Enjoy that? Give it a share!
