Fergie quells Hernandez fears

By David McNeill

Concerned Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson today played down fears of a brain condition affecting striker Javier Hernandez.

The Mexico frontman, known as Chicarito, spent Tuesday night in hospital after complaining of headaches.

Medical staff gave Hernandez the all-clear but Ferguson has already ruled the 22-year-old out for a fortnight and he was driven down to Washington from New York rather than making the 220-mile journey by plane for tomorrow’s game with Barcelona.

Concussion was suspected after ‘Chico’ had been struck on the head by a ball in training but then a history of youthful neurological problems were revealed in Mexico.

The United boss responded: “I am not aware of that but we won't be rushing him back. I'll only bring him back when the doctor tells me I can.”
