O’Shea embraces 'special' week ahead

Published Add your comment

Manchester United's John O'Shea is eagerly anticipating the biggest week of the season so far, and says that the challenges ahead are exactly what the team expects at the ‘business end’ of the campaign.

After a straightforward 2-0 victory over Fulham at Old Trafford on Saturday, the Red Devils edged a step closer to the Barclays Premier League title.

But Sir Alex Ferguson's men will now turn their attention to the Champions League quarter-final, second leg tie with Chelsea before heading to Wembley next weekend for the FA Cup semi-final clash with bitter rivals Manchester City.

"It's a special week, but that's what being part of a Manchester United team is all about," O'Shea said in an interview with MUTV.


"If we beat Chelsea we go through to a European semi-final, then we have City at Wembley. They're dream games and we want to come out on top."

Having made a surprise return to action against the Cottagers at the weekend, the Republic of Ireland international is ready to help Manchester United in their pursuit for trophies on three domestic and European fronts.

"I'm a week or two ahead of schedule," he revealed. "I worked really hard with the physios and they've been able to get me back a little quicker.

"I was a little bit cautious as I didn't want to go hell for leather so soon after coming back.

"It was a great game for me as I was able to get my confidence back and hopefully I'm an option for the games ahead."
