Ferguson: Young nearing full fitness

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced Ashley Young will be fit for Manchester United's Champions League clash with Real Madrid next month.

Young sustained a knee injury in the victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford a fortnight ago and Ferguson expected the England international to return for last weekend's draw at Tottenham. The former Aston Villa man did not make it and there have been claims the injury is much more longer term that Ferguson first anticipated.

However, the United boss insisted Young is not far away from a return and will be fit to face Jose Mourinho's men. And he said: "Ashley is not far away. He has done a bit of training and he is on the road back."
