The revelation from Owen Hargreaves that he was not entirely happy with the treatment he received form the United medical staff whilst he was out injured, certainly drew a swift response form Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sir Alex Ferguson, quite rightly, defended his medical team, commenting at the pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Stoke City,

“As far as I`m concerned my medical staff are one of the reasons why Manchester United have been so successful over the last few years.”

“There`s no doubt about that. We have fantastic medical staff, great sports science and do you think we would have been successful if we didn`t have an operation that wasn`t 100 per cent and worked absolutely brilliantly?”

“The doctors and sports scientists are fantastic. That`s my opinion and that`s more important than what anyone has got to say about it.”


Following Sir Alex`s verbal tirade, the club also issued a statement about the affair, commenting,

“The club gave him the best possible care for three years and is as disappointed as anyone he was not bale to play a part in the teams success at that time.”

Has the matter been put to bed?

It remains to be seen!
