Javier Hernandez delighted with Mourinho’s praise

West Ham signing Javier Hernandez is delighted with the praise coming his way from Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Chicharito has responded to Mourinho's comments that he has 'evolved a lot' since leaving United.

Speaking after his first West Ham training session the Mexican said: "I say thank you to those words. All the people around the world and this sport that speak about myself and qualities, I thank them. It doesn't matter where, I always say thank you to them.

"I am always motivated when a trainer like Mourinho speaks well about me. I had very good four years at my old club but I am at a new club now.

"I am going back to my old club on the first game, my old house if you can say. It'll be very special but I am defending other colours there, I want to help my team get the three points and get the season off on the right foot."

"Going back to Manchester will be a very special moment."
