DIMITAR BERBATOV has backed Javier Hernandez to become a huge star for Manchester United.
Bulgarian hitman Berbatov thinks Hernandez’s work ethic off the field will pay dividends in the future.
The Mexico ace — nicknamed Chicharito — has impressed with his performances in his debut season with United.
And Berbatov said: “Every time when he goes onto the pitch, the only thing in Javier’s mind is to score goals.
“He is trouble for defenders. Everybody knows he is very quick. If you give him space and time he is very dangerous.
“He has done really well and the future is ahead of him because he is still young.
“I have seen the way he works in practice and after that in the gym. If he keeps going like that he has a great future.”
Berbatov is top of the Premier League scoring charts and is eyeing the Golden Boot this term.
He added: “I hope I can stay on the top until the end of the season.
“Obviously the goals I score help the team to win points, which is the most important thing.
“For now everything is going according to plan but there are other players doing well.
“It is a good competition but when you are at the top, you always look back to see who is coming behind you.”
