Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said Javier Hernandez deserves the praise he received for his late winner in the Carling Cup fourth round.
Hernandez, who scored twice at Stoke on Sunday, came off the bench to give United a 3-2 victory at home to Wolves.
“They tend to build heroes quickly here but he’s justifying the praise at the moment,” said a delighted Ferguson.
“He was absolutely brilliant – it was a magnificent goal. He’s shaped to shoot, dummied the defender and finished really well.
“Javier is very professional, the first out on the training ground and the last one back in every day and he’s rightly getting a lot of praise for his goalscoring.
“His touch and control of the ball is improving, his vision is improving and that’s because the training is intense and we care about our training and make sure our players do improve.”
Ferguson gave striker Bebe his first start and the Portuguese gave United the lead.
Ferguson added: “Bebe did the right thing and attacked the defender. It was either going to be a good cross or a deflection into the net.
“It was a very open game in the second half, Wolves played very well and it was a really good cup tie.”
In his programme notes before the game at Old Trafford, Ferguson said he wanted to bring an end to the Wayne Rooney the saga.
“It’s been a traumatic time for Manchester United and no doubt everyone is as relieved as I am that the situation with Wayne Rooney has been resolved,” Ferguson stated.
“Once the news came out that Wayne wanted to leave, the publicity and impact that had and the response it generated, showed how big Manchester United is and that resonated with him quite a lot.
“Wayne apologised to me and the players and it’s now time to draw a line under last week and face the challenges that lie ahead.
“We have a good squad, the unity and spirit is fine and the structure of the club is good. There is nothing wrong with United.”
