After sitting out of football for nearly a whole season, things are still not looking good for Darren Fletcher and his return to football. Despite resting for a year, Fletcher’s illness is still causing significant problems and Sir Alex is unfortunately unsure about his future. Although nothing is written off yet, the fact even Sir Alex is seemingly pessimistic about his chances certainly isn’t good news. Fletcher suffers from ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease and, as you can see from the picture of him at Wimbledon earlier in the week [above], it really is having an effect on him.
“We’ll wait and see about that. Obviously the boy is trying very hard to get back to his level” said Sir Alex when questioned about Fletcher. “It’s not going to be easy but we’ll give him every possible chance and we’ll see how he does. He kept himself active towards the end of the season when he replaced Paul Scholes as a reserves coach when Scholes decided to come back to the fold as a player. Darren’s a terrific lad and we all hope he can come back.” I still hold hope over Fletcher but there are rumours from within the club that he might be forced to retire, and when coupled with these latest quotes you certainly start to wonder that they might be true. Lets just hope not.
