Javier Hernandez hospitalized with concussion
Question of the Day
HARRISON, N.J. (AP) - Manchester United striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez missed Wednesday night’s match against the MLS All-Stars after being hospitalized overnight for a concussion sustained during a training session a day earlier.
The dynamic Mexican goal scorer wasn’t missed as Man United beat the MLS All-Star team 4-0.
According to a statement released by the English Premier League champions, the 23-year-old Hernandez sustained a mild concussion when he took a ball off the top of his head. He is expected to miss up to two weeks.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said after the game that he hadn’t planned on playing Hernandez much in Wednesday’s match. Ferguson also said he didn’t have big plans for Hernandez in Saturday’s European Champions League final rematch against Barcelona in Washington D.C.
“He would never have been available for Barcelona, anyway,” Ferguson said. “He’s just coming back from a break after playing the (Concacaf) Gold Cup for Mexico. He wasn’t going to be involved for two or three weeks, anyway.”
Hernandez had joined Manchester United’s U.S. Tour late and had seen only limited time.
“We took him to the hospital overnight, and all the scans were good,” Ferguson said. “He spent today resting in his hotel room.”
The effects of the concussion did not become immediately apparent, as witnesses to Tuesday night’s practice at Red Bull Arena noted that Hernandez was the last player to leave the field. After the practice, the striker ran sprints with a teammate.
