Man Utd boss Ferguson admits heartbreaker dropping Chicharito

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he struggles having to drop Javier Hernandez for Robin van Persie.

The red-hot Mexican hitman can do no wrong, with 14 goals in 24 appearances this term.

But the man nicknamed Chicharito - Little Pea - is still sometimes squeezed out by Manchester United's big guns Van Persie and Wayne Rooney.

Boss Fergie said: "It's a terrible dilemma when I've got that lad there.

"Sometimes I leave him out to bring in Robin van Persie but, as I explain to him, we regard him so highly. He's a fantastic professional, unbelievable attitude to the game, never stops running or working and every training session's the same.

"So I'm really pleased for him and it's also good to see Wayne back scoring."
