Darren Fletcher Eyes To Improve Manchester United’s Fortunes

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is eager to help his side regain their form after months out with a chronic bowel injury.

Fletcher returned to action as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa. He received a standing ovation from both sets of fans as he came on to replace Ryan Giggs.

Manchester United have faced a difficult start to the Premier League in Moyes’ first season, which has left United currently lying 8th in the table, 10 points behind league leaders Arsenal.

“We need to go on a winning run and put ourselves in a position where people are saying we are still there”, said Fletcher.

COMEBACK: Darren Fletcher in the 3-0 victory against Aston Villa

Fletcher was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in December 2011 and has made 13 appearances since then for both club and country.

The illness was serious and almost made Darren Fletcher end his career as a footballer.

Darren Fletcher has made 310 appearances for Manchester United and has won numerous amounts of silverware at United, including four Premier League titles, one FA Cup and one Champions League.

Fletcher now feels that he is ready and raring to go after his useful impact as a substitute in the weekend.

The Scottish midfielder is hoping to play against Stoke in the Quarter Finals of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night.
