Darren Fletcher still does not know when he might return to action, Sky
During his time on the sidelines, Fletcher has undergone a number of operations, and has been placed on a dietary regime. He did briefly return last season, making 13 appearances for club and country, scoring one goal, in the Premier League against Sunderland.
The 29-year-old Scot will miss the start of the new season, and he is unsure on when he might make his comeback. He said: “I’m still in the hands of the surgeons at the moment – I’ve not actually started training yet. I don’t have a timescale for when I will be back playing really. Hopefully it is not going to be too far away in the distant future.
“I just need to be patient. After all I’ve gone through I think it’s important that I’m patient. If it means a few extra weeks to get myself right, then so be it.”
