When announced that Chicharito would be substituted by Manuel Pellegrini, the home support gave the Mexican a standing ovation, fondly remembering his five-years at Old Trafford.

Hernandez won two Premier League titles during his time at the club.

Responding to the standing ovation, Hernandez used Instagram to thank United fans for their support and wished the club the best for the future.

Hernandez wrote: “It’s difficult to find the words to describe the feeling getting off the pitch today. @manchesterunited will be always a very special club for me and my family. Coming back to Old Trafford and to having a standing ovation is not easy to digest… thank you to all the Manchester United fans today for doing that. A day I will never forget. Hopefully United can get back winning premier leagues and champions leagues soon for the deserving fans, players and staff. Once again thank you very much and good luck in the future! Love you all!”
