As the elder statesmen of the dressing room its only right that both and are revered by their team mates.

Despite both being well into their 30s, Giggs and Scholes continue to turn it on when called upon and each have a medal collection befitting of their talents.

An example to their teammates new and old, has paid tribute to the pair.

Hernandez has some way to go to match Ryan Giggs’ haul of 12 Premier League medals but with his first out of the way, he feel’s if he can emulate the two it will place him in good stead:

and Ryan Giggs – what can I say about them?

“They are legends.  They are 38 years old but they run like they are 20 years old.  They have so much talent and are world-class players.

“As younger players, we need to learn about them and to learn every detail about them – how they are very professional.  I am very proud to be their team-mates.”

Hernandez also paid tribute to the fans and the support they show as he spoke at Nike’s official unveiling of the 2012/2013 ‘Gingham’ kit:

“They are very very important for us.

“All the time, they go to Old Trafford.  There are 70,000 – 80,000 fans cheering, supporting, singing and celebrating.

“In times when the game is not going very well, they try to support you to motivate you.  They are very important.  All the fans are very important for us – to support us.

“They only thing we need to do is to do our best on and off the pitch to help the team win and to give the fans a very satisfactory feeling.”
