There is some good news for Darren Fletcher fans. The Scotland captain who has been completely out of action since the last 9 months is slowly getting back to 100% fitness. He has even started to train with the first team of his club Manchester United and that’s definitely a big positive for him.
However, the Red Devils boss David Moyes has made it clear that there is no chance of Fletcher returning to action in near future.
Fletcher has actually been struggling with his health since the last couple of years. Towards the end of 2011, he was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and since then, he hasn’t been able to make too many appearances for United. The last time that Fletcher had featured in Manchester United shirt was on December 26 last year. That was a game against Newcastle United and the Red Devils had won it by a close margin of 4-3.
Fletcher went through operation at the start of this year because of which he couldn’t play any match for United in the second half of the last season.
Despite being away from the game for so long, he was included in United’s Premier League squad for the ongoing season by the new boss David Moyes and that was a big boost for the 29 years old midfielder.
Talking to the reporters about Fletcher yesterday, Moyes said, “He is not close to making a comeback. But, it’s fantastic to see him back to training. It seems his recovery is going fine.”
Fletcher is not a new name at Manchester United. He has been a part of this club since the last 18 years. He has already made more than 300 league appearances for the Red Devils and has found the net 25 times.
