Sir Alex Ferguson is currently in the USA promoting Manchester United’s pre-season tour and has been asked about Javier Hernandez’s progress.

The manager is full of praise for the youngster but is mindful of keeping him fresh and not burning him out.

“Javier has had a fantastic season,” Ferguson said. “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. We are trying to keep him as fresh as we possibly can for the important games we have coming up.”

RoM will publish the confirmed dates for the USA tour after 4pm today.

The RoM Manchester United 2022-23 season preview is now available for just £6. It includes exclusive interviews with Patrice Evra and Kleberson, articles from the country's best football writers about our expectations for the season ahead and our brightest talents, as well as proposed transfer business and which youth players to keep an eye out for. All profit goes to Trafford Macmillan so please support this fantastic cause.
