Sir Alex Ferguson has today confirmed that Javier Hernandez will not be representing Mexico in this summer’s Olympics.
Last summer he won the Gold Cup with Mexico as the competition’s top scorer and best player. The summer before he played in the World Cup and scored goals against Argentina and France.
“His form last season was fantastic,” said Ferguson. “He’s found the second year more difficult, but a lot of that is down to not having a summer break for three years and playing every summer for his country. Next year he will be fine as we have agreed with the Mexican Football Association that he is going to get the requisite rest that he needs to perform in the Premier League.”
