Former Manchester United striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez admits his love for the club will never die.

The 33-year-old may have moved on from United six years ago, but says he is a Red at heart.

Hernandez became a fan favorite after his goal scoring exploits following a move from Chivas in 2010.

Chicharito netted a total of 59 goals for the Red Devils, winning two Premier League titles along the way.

"Manchester United is always going to be my team. I'm very grateful for Real Madrid, Sevilla, Bayer Leverkusen, West Ham, all of them," he said on the UTD Podcast.

"I love them [my former teams], I still love them and I'm going to be grateful forever but honestly, I feel it that you're once a Red, always a Red.

"What I experienced, what I lived, I can say that I was the only Mexican under Sir Alex Ferguson, I scored the last goal under him, I am the only Mexican who has won [the Premier League] so far.

"I hope more Mexican players can be in a United shirt, I will love it. But I am the only Mexican who has won the Premier League and then twice and it was the 19[th] and 20[th titles].

"They then helped me to live another opportunity like play for Real Madrid and then go to Germany. Everything was because of those four years in my career."
