Darren Fletcher picked up a knee ligament injury while away on international duty and was expected to miss six weeks. However, he could be back for our Champions League semi-final clash with Barcelona.

At that time Fergie blasted the international friendlies, calling them futile and pointless. His opinion has surely not changed but he’s happily looking forward to having another option.

‘We’re looking forward to it (the Barcelona game), and hopefully by the time of the game we’ll have a fully-fit squad to give us a chance,’ he said.

‘We’re carrying one or two injuries that’s making us change things around too many times at the moment.

‘But Fletcher, Vidic and Nani are on their way back, while Saha has started training with us this week.

‘So there are a lot of plusses.’
