Hernandez on the comeback trail

Next Story

Manchester United fans will be pleased to hear that Javier Hernandez is on the mend, with the striker revealing he is back in training and awaiting Sir Alex Ferguson’s word on when he can return to action.

Hernandez sustained a concussion in a training session on United’s USA pre-season tour, and Ferguson ruled the Mexico international out for at least four weeks of the season.

But Hernandez insists that he is getting closer to a full recovery by the day, and it won’t be long now until he can take to the pitch in a United shirt once more.

"My head is good, I feel better now,” Hernandez said.

"I have been training with the team for three or four days but I don't know when I will be back in the squad. I always say they are the decisions for the manager. Only he can answer that.

"I just need to be fit and working."


The star, nicknamed Chicharito, admitted that his confidence has been down as a result of the injury, and is concentrating on getting back into the game at full speed.

He added: "It was a header but the ball moved a little bit and I didn't head it well.

"I went back to the hotel and had dinner but I started feeling bad. I went to my room to rest but I had to call the doctor and they took me to hospital.

"I just need to look forward, get my confidence and start heading the ball again."

United fans will no doubt be hoping to see the 23-year-old in action this weekend, when the club take on Arsenal at Old Trafford.
