You’ve had a great career”.

After praising the Mexican’s time at United, Sir Alex took the opportunity to pass on some advice to the 35 year old striker and what is new role should be at Chivas.

“When you go back to your old club, you’ve an opportunity, to add your experience and give your experience to all the players there”.

The legendary Scot signed off by stating, “so, regards to your family, have a great time and more goals to come. All the best!”.

Chicharito responded with a message saying “Boss, there’s no words to describe how much you mean to me. Been able to say I was one of your players is one of my biggest achievements. THANK YOU!”

It was relayed here a couple of weeks ago that Hernandez had a desire to return back to where it all began and play in the Mexican league for his former side.

The player had been a free agent since leaving LA Galaxy last year and has played for numerous clubs since he left United in 2015.
