Read the full story: Chicharito pens new deal
To celebrate Chicharito’s five-year contract, which will keep him at Old Trafford until at least the end of 2015/16, we’ve dug out five of his most important goals in a Reds shirt.
Valencia 0 United 1 (29 September 2010)
Chicha’s first strike in Europe, a smart left-footed finish after a brilliant first touch, settled a tense affair at the Mestalla in the 85th minute.
Stoke 1 United 2 (24 October 2010)
After nodding the Reds in front with an inventive back-header, Hernandez won the game four minutes from time with a predatory finish.
United 1 Everton 0 (23 April 2011)
Despite insistent probing, it looked like the Reds would have to settle for a draw… until Chicha popped up with another late winner.
United 2 Chelsea 1 (8 May 2011)
No late drama here. In fact, just 36 seconds had elapsed when Hernandez sprinted clear of the Chelsea defence and slotted calmly home.
