Hargreaves struggling for fitness

Published Add your comment

Owen Hargreaves has virtually written off his chances of making his Champions League debut for Manchester United in Lisbon on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old pulled out of the recent England double-header with a thigh strain and also sat out Saturday´s Premier League win at Everton and he was unable to train on Monday morning and now appears resigned to setting his sights on the weekend game with Chelsea instead.

"It´s okay, I have never really had this injury before so this is new territory," said the midfielder. "I thought I would be fit for the Israel game, then the Russia game and then Everton, but I´ve still not done it. I have to take it day by day so hopefully I will be fit for the weekend."
