Being ruled out due to bowel disorders for ten months, Darren Fletcher might be back in business.
Darren Fletcher made a brief appearance against Galatasaray this Wednesday. He might get sme more features in the near future as Sir Alex hinted towards today, at his press conference at Carrington. The Scottish midfielder might get a chance to prove himself, again, when Newcastle take on Newcastle in Capital One cup and Spurs in the Premier League.
“Darren made a start [to his comeback] on Wednesday which was great,” the boss told. “He won’t start the match on Sunday but he’ll certainly play against Newcastle. I think that’s a perfect game for him to start back. Then we have the game against Tottenham next Saturday and he possibly could be involved in that, but it depends how he does on Wednesday.
“It’ll be his first full 90 minutes after 10 months out so it’ll be a big night for him. He’s handling the conditions at the moment and he looks fine as we saw the other night. It’s a matter of hoping the condition stays dormant. He’s handling his diet well and doing all the right things so hopefully he gets that break he needs.”
Darren Fletcher was given a standing ovation from a delighted Old Trafford crowd. He replaced Paul Scholes in the 79th minute against the Turkish champions.
Fletcher was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2011. He played ten matches that season scoring two goals. He is also the captain of Scotland.
