Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted that after seeing Chicharito’s impressive form, he is badly confused about who to start with Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck being the other three options.
Javier Hernandez regained his lost position by scoring two goals against Braga: one before the half-time when United were 2 – 0 down and then scored a header to ensure United’s 3 – 2 victory. The goals marked one of Chicharito’s best performance this season.
“Chicharito has given me a good problem,” said Sir Alex. “He’s got me thinking, I must say that. He and van Persie and Rooney and Welbeck… I don’t know what to do with them to be honest with you.
“The boy is improving all the time. He has a great enthusiasm for the game, he trains magnificently, he practices all the time and his goal ratio is fantastic.
“It was a great ball from Tom Cleverley for the second goal but Chicharito’s movement in behind the defender for the second goal was terrific.”
Sir Alex Ferguson is lucky as all four of his senior strikers scored goals in a period of three days. Rooney (two goals), Welbeck and Persie all scored against Stoke this weekend. Just like Stoke, Braga also scored two goals against United.
“It’s been the story of our season really at home, starting badly, conceding goals and having to fight back to rescue games. And it’s the front players who are doing that for us,” admitted Sir Alex.
“It is a concern we’re losing a lot of goals, but I must say some of our football was terrific tonight, we played some fantastic football and we created a lot of chances. We kept a really good momentum to our game and played with good speed.
“We got a result most people would not have expected us to get after being 2-0 down – being 2-0 down in a European tie is very difficult – but credfit to the players for the way we came back.”
United will now be having a tough schedule ahead as they will play against Chelsea, twice, and Arsenal.
