The United boss told US station Sirius XM: “Javier has had a fantastic season. We are just keeping an eye on him because he played in the World Cup last year and this is his first season in the Premier League.”
He added: “We are trying to keep him as fresh as we possibly can for the important games we have coming up.”
“He is a marvellous player, he is a great trainer. He is a good type. His attitude is fantastic. He is a really outstanding boy.”
With a non-stop run of must-win games coming up Chicharito will no doubt have a pivotal part to play in the remainder of the season.
Chicharito scored twice in Mexico’s recent win over Paraguay and is expected to figure in his national sides game against Venezuela, which takes place in San Diego.
Part of the problem following internationals for the Little Pea is the extensive travelling he’s forced to make after each game to get back to Manchester.
Despite having five goals in his last six games, Chicharito may be rested for Saturday’s game against West Ham or have to settle for a place on the bench, as he recovers fully from the international week.
