Rio Ferdinand welcomes Javier Hernandez back to the Premier League

Rio Ferdinand spent the majority of his playing career in Old Trafford as a player of Manchester United.

It was with the English outfit that Ferdinand was able to establish himself as one of the most highly-rated defenders in the sport.

 The English retiree was a consistent starter in just about every single season and played a huge role in Manchester United´s period of time when they emerged victorious not only in England but also in Europe.

 Unfortunately for Javier Hernandez, his time spent in Manchester United was not as memorable, at least in comparison to Rio Ferdinand as the Mexican attacker was regularly utilized as a substitute player.

 During the season of 2011-12, Javier Hernandez made 28 appearances with the English Premier League club which is more than any other and it´s actually a pretty high amount of performances but out of those 28 appearances, 10 of them arrived from the bench as he came into the pitch as an impact substitute player.

 This was the regular routine of Javier Hernandez and he was eventually offloaded to Bayer Leverkusen on August of 2015.

 The Mexican forward spent 2 seasons with Leverkusen and has recently completed his return to the English Premier League after being signed up by West Ham United.

 From the looks of it, Rio Ferdinand is extremely pleased to see his former teammate making a return to the top tier English football league as he has a 2nd chance to prove his worth in England.

 Using his twitter social media account, Rio Ferdinand wrote: Yesssss my man @CH14_welcome back to the @premierleague #Goals 

 After hanging up his playing boots on 2015, Rio Ferdinand has turned into a regular pundit for BT Sport as well as going on to make a documentary for BBC One titled: Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum and Dad.
