With so many first team players out, Sir Alex spoke to the club’s official website to give a fresh injury update. 

Injuries have been coming thick and fast for United but it appears that we will be seeing faces back in the next few weeks, encouraging especially with the run of fixtures coming up.

Nemanja Vidic had surgery earlier this week and despite his injury being a long term one, Sir Alex bore good news in regards to his captain.

Speaking to the club’s site, Sir Alex said,

 “He had surgery on Wednesday and came through fine.

“They didn’t remove anything at all, everything’s clear, but it’s a cruciate so it’ll be next season.”

There was further good news too:

“Anderson’s coming on great,” he said. “He’s showing great progress. He’s trained well. We’re just monitoring him, because he still has to do a lot of work in the gymnasium, but he’s coming along.

“Fabio Da Silva’s not far away, he should be back in maybe 10 days. The centre-backs (Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans) aren’t long-term – they should be available in the next week or two.”

The only downer came in regards to midfielder Tom Cleverley and striker Michael Owen.

Cleverley was making serious waves prior to picking up an ankle injury and with Sir Alex stating he is “still nowhere near” returning, his absence will continue to be felt,

“Cleverley’s a massive loss.

“He, to my mind, is probably the best midfield player in Britain, potentially. He has fantastic promise, so it’s a loss to us.”

    Lets be realistic – given the current squad of players a top4 finish is the most realistic target

  8. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!
