United might, just might be able to call on Owen Hargreaves a month from now. It seems incredible but Sir Alex insists the player is doing fine with rehab and is almost ready to start proper training after more than a year on the sidelines.

“He`s working with the physio that was with him in America and our own physios, and he is doing very well, we`re really pleased,” he said.

‘He`s delighted to be back, obviously. It`s been a long time for the kid. I think we`ll get him into football training in 10 days’ time.

‘Then, depending how well he does with that, he should be back for the beginning of November, I`d hope.’


Let’s not get too excited though – I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if his first outing actually came in January. Fingers crossed he’ll be back soon, we need him.
