Darren Fletcher has made a comeback in the Manchester United team after recovering from the abdominal injury. He played for United in the friendly match against Aberdeen. This was the first match for Fletcher in the last 9 months. He hadn’t played any match since November last year. Manchester United was defeated by Aberdeen in that match by 2-1. Fletcher came to play as a substitute in the second half of the match. He was running smoothly and seemed to have regained 100% fitness.
Fletcher has been with Manchester United right from the start of his career. He had joined the Youth team of United way back in 2001 when he was just 17 years of age. He played his first match for the senior team of United in March 2003 against Basel in a match of the UEFA Champions League. Fletcher didn’t take much time in cementing his place in the first team of United. At the end of the 2005-06 season, Roy Keane, who was the captain of United at that time, praised him a lot and said that Fletcher has got everything to become a great player. In the last season, Fletcher assisted in some goals and was performing decently, but, unfortunately, he had to take a break from football in November 2011 due to the abdominal injury.
The manager of United, Sir Alex Ferguson, is overjoyed by the return of one of his experienced players. Ferguson said that he hadn’t thought that Fletcher would recover before the start of the season. As per Ferguson, Fletcher was suffering from a serious abdominal problem and he was expected to regain full fitness around October. But, he worked very hard on his fitness and managed to make a comeback before the beginning of the season.
