Darren Fletcher plotting comeback

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has stated that his recovery is going well, and that he hopes to be back to action with the Premier League champions next season.

The Scotland international continues to battle a debilitating bowel condition and has been absent for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men for the bulk of the season due to the illness.

However Fletcher feels that he is making progress and wants to be fit and available for selection for next term.

“I’m OK. I’m taking all my medication and listening to the doctor,” he told Manchester Evening News.

“It’s a week by week situation so I’ve not got any timescale on recovery, but the target for me is next season now. If I can come back then that would be great for me.

“It’s something that will never leave me, but you have to find somehow a way to manage it so that I can still play my football.

“I’m trying everything under the sun at the moment, diet, hypnotherapy,” he admitted.
