Hernandez: These three Manchester United strikers were the best in the world

Javier Hernandez has heaped praise on Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and... Dimitar Berbatov.

Javier Hernandez is not worried about competition for places at Real Madrid - because he learned from the 'best in the world' at Manchester Untied.

The Mexican completed a Deadine-Day loan move from Manchester to Madrid and must now challenge Karim Benzema for a first-team place at the Bernabeu.

But Hernandez says he if not fazed by Benzema, as he learned from the best in the world at Old Trafford - Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Dimitar Berbatov.

"I know I will have to face Benzema, as happened to me when I arrived at Manchester. It is normal to compete for a spot," he told Neox TV.

“I am delighted to be with Karim. I've had competition at Manchester United from Berbatov, Rooney or Van Persie and learned from the best in the world.”

Berbatov, now at AS Monaco, spent four years at Man United before leaving for Fulham.

During his time at Old Trafford, the Bulgarian was his club's top scorer at one point but became known for a style of play in which he produced limited movement off the ball.

Rooney and Van Persie, meanwhile, remain at United and will be charged with the burden of restoring the club to their former heights.

They will have a little help from Radamel Falcao, however, who left Berbatov's Monaco to join United on loan during Deadline Day.

Next up for Louis van Gaal's side are Queens Park Rangers at home on Sunday.
