'Chicarito' inspired by team-mates

Mexican striker is delighted by the skills of his fellow Man Utd stars

'Chicarito' has scored six Barclays Premier League goals so far this season

Manchester United star Javier Hernandez - whose nickname 'Chicarito' is on the back of his shirt - says he thinks his team-mates are an inspiration.

Javier, who is from Mexico, has scored six times in the Barclays Premier League this season, after netting 20 goals last season.

He says that although he is battling against some top players to win a place in the side, he is delighted to play alongside such high-quality footballers.

"Everyone knows [Dimitar] Berbatov is a brilliant player. His touch and technique are unbelievable. Then you have Wazza [Wayne Rooney], who is a world-class player, and Danny Welbeck, who is doing very well this season."
