With the Scot to retire at the end of the season, the Mexico international paid his compliments to the man who brought him to Europe in the summer of 2010
After guiding United to the Premier League title this term, Ferguson will end his 26-year reign at Old Trafford to become a director and ambassador at the club, while Everton boss David Moyes is set to replace the Scot as manager.
“When I retire, it will be satisfying to say that I was one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s boys,” Chicharito told TV Azteca.
“More than an anecdote for me, I see it as an achievement and a blessing.
“It’s a source of pride to say I was with one of the best coaches in history."
Since Chicharito joined United in summer of 2010, the 24-year-old has won two Premier League titles under Sir Alex.
Chicharito described the United boss as a “gentleman” and adding that he lives up to the title of “Sir.”
“He treats everyone equally. He’s always helping you,” Hernandez said.
“Something that impresses me is that he never lost his competitiveness; in spite of everything he won, he continues to be hungry. He’s a winner."
