The injury Chicharito suffered at the hands of a reckless Ashley Cole challenge on Sunday is not a serious as first thought according to reports.
At first it was thought the striker would initially be out for at least two weeks, but now reports suggest there’s still a chance he could actually be back in the squad for the Stoke game this weekend.
Despite fears over Hernandez’s fitness for United’s next Premier League game against Stoke on Saturday, the player’s agent claims the striker suffered no more than “just a bump” and will return to training this week.
“[The injury is] nothing, it’s just a bump, nothing more,” agent Eduardo Hernandez told Telivisa. “I expect him to be training without incident on Wednesday. It looked like [his absence] was longer, they were looking for a fracture, that’s why they ran those tests on him.”
Ashley Cole was booked for the challenge and despite replays showing its a clear red card offence, the Chelsea defender will not face an FA charge. There’s a surprise…..
Could have been a lot worse for Chicharito, it was obvious Cole had no intention of getting the ball at all.
A sickening challenge that the referees are letting United’s opponents get away with week in week out.
