United won't take any chances with Mexican magician

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to rest Javier Hernandez after his recent injury scare in America.

The Mexican international suffered a head injury whilst training ahead of the Red Devils' pre-season clash against Barcelona, and was admitted to hospital for scans after the concussion.

Amidst reports of a history of suffering such injuries, Ferguson has played down the issue, and is extremely confident 'Chicharito' will make a full recovery.

"I'm not aware of that," the manager responded to journalists when questioned over Hernandez's track record of suffering from head injuries.

"This is a straightforward concussion. He was hit on the top of the head with a ball in the early evening, and when he was back in the hotel eating he was sick.


"He went to hospital and was kept in overnight, but the scans were clear and they released him."

Portuguese winger Luis Nani went on to reveal that Hernandez was feeling fine when the club flew home to England on Sunday, and even hinted that the striker could be ready for action as soon as this weekend.

"I think he's okay now. I think he needs a couple days to come back to training, but he's feeling very good," said Nani.

However, Ferguson has revealed that the forward will be given time to rest and recuperate following a lengthy period of action for both United and Mexico, with the Scottish boss revealing that Hernandez will return after the start of the new season.

"Javier was always going to get a break," said Ferguson.

"In a two-week period now he'll do some training but he won't play. We'll have him back in three to four weeks."
