Chivas Guadalajara won a friendly match pre-season 2010 from Manchester United by 3-2 on Friday, 30 July 2010. Chivas Guadalajara invested US$150 million for the inauguration of Chivas Stadium Omnilife. The match was started at 21:15 local time on Friday, 30 July 2010. On Saturday morning, 31 July, Match Day Live broadcast of MUTV will start at 04:45 BST. Mexican Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez played the starting 45 minutes for his old team and became the star of the match by scoring first goal of the game in the eighth minute on a bouncing 20-meter (yard) shot.
The young Mexican, Chicharito got another chance to impress for United, following his goalscoring appearance against MLS All-Stars in Houston. Then, for Manchester United, the second half was played by him but he had few chances in front of a sellout of 45,000. Striker Wayne Rooney and many of top stars were not played with Manchester United.
For Manchester United, Chris Smalling equalized a minute later, but Adolfo Bautista gave Chivas a 2-1 lead in the 38th and Hector Reynoso made it 3-1 on a header in the 59th. Nani narrowed the lead to 3-2 in the 80th. Chivas had to postpone a league match against Morelia by playing the match against Manchester United.
Earlier this summer, Hernandez signed for United when he moved to Old Trafford for around £7 million, with Ferguson claiming that the fee would have been tripled had the club waited till until after the World Cup finals, in which the Mexico international scored two goals and was rated the fastest player in South Africa.
Ferguson said, “The one thing defenders worry about is players with speed, who get into the space behind them”. “When you see his goal it is an indication of that speed. The timing of his run, coming towards the ball spinning, he is going to be a threat to defenders, no question.” Arena said, “Manchester United has a global scouting network and they know where all the great players are.”
