Manager Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t want to take any risk with striker and has opted to rest Hernandez for the game on Sunday, the Mexican had an explosive start to his Premier League career last season but Fergie feels Hernandez won’t be ready until the end of the month.
Ferguson said: "Chicharito won't be involved for maybe another two or three weeks - considering he had a concussion some years ago we are just playing safe with that but he should be back by the end of August."
Sunday's Community Shield sees United face City for only the second time, but Ferguson suggest he won’t get too carried away with the occasion.
He said: "I have always viewed the Community Shield as a stepping stone to the first game of the season.
"It's very easy to get emotional about this type of game but I don't think we will be changing our policy. There may be two or three players who need the game on Sunday."
