Ferguson to take time with Fletcher

Published Add your comment

Scotland captain Darren Fletcher made his Manchester United return following a lengthy lay-off in a 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen in a benefit match for Dons legend Neil Simpson.

The United midfielder had not played since November 22 last year after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammatory bowel condition.

The 28-year-old played the final 30 minutes in front of a packed Pittodrie, and Ferguson told MUTV: "It's been quiet progress for the boy. He joined in training a couple of weeks ago and it's one of those situations where you say: 'Let's see how he does because he has had a really difficult time in the last year'."
