Looking ahead to making his Champions League return, Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has stated that he has ‘unfinished business’ with the competition, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Despite Man Utd reaching three Champions League finals during Fletcher’s time at the club, winning once, the Scot has not featured in any of them. Having been left out altogether when the Red Devils triumphed over Chelsea in 2008, he was controversially suspended for the defeat to Barcelona the following year, before being an unused substitute against the Catalans in 2011.

And now, set to make his first European appearance for over a year after a lengthy absence due to illness, Fletcher admits that he has unfinished business with the Champions League. He said: “I have unfinished business in the Champions League. It would be nice to finish that off.”

On his side’s second round tie with Olympiakos, which starts on Tuesday, Fletcher added: “Being in the Champions League squad is a massive thing for me. It was nice when I saw that I had been named back in the squad.

"The manager felt I wouldn’t be able to play a part in the group matches, so he never named me in the squad and that turned out to be true. But now I am back playing and back in the squad, so I want to be a part of it.

“We have a tough tie against Olympiakos, but if we get through that, anything can happen from there.”
