Sir Alex revealed that Owen Hargreaves will be named in United’s Champions League squad. The midfielder hasn’t played a competitive game for the club since September 2008 but he should finally be able to make his comeback soon – though still no date has been set.

‘Owen Hargreaves is still training with the Reserves,’ Sir Alex said.

‘He`s done three sessions with us [the first team] and he did very well in Qatar. I will probably name him in my Champions League squad when I finalise it.’

We may rejoice but actually there’s not much to cheer about. Owen Hargreaves was named in the squad for the group stages and Fergie hoped he would play in the last three games but needless to say he hasn’t featured at all. His comeback has been delayed time and time again and the fact that Fergie has still not put a timescale on it speaks volumes. We’re luck if we see him play at all this season.
