Golden boy is obviously not a United fan.


United have received further good news on the injury front, as Mikael Silvestre and Ben Foster continue to make steady progress with their recoveries from long-term knocks.

The revelation comes just 24 hours after Gary Neville declared he now felt fit enough to play in a first-team match and Paul Scholes confirmed he was on track to return in late January or early February.

Sir Alex has been without French defender Silvestre since he damaged his knee against Everton in August, while goalkeeper Foster has been sidelined since May 2007, also with a knee problem, and is still to make his Reds debut.

But the manager told Manchester United Radio the duo are yet to suffer any setbacks in their recoveries.

“Mikael’s actually doing some of his recovery in France,” the Reds boss said. “That’s not a problem as far as we’re concerned because he’s such a dedicated professional and he’ll get the work done.

“Ben’s also coming along fine and he’s doing some goalkeeping work now. But we have to be careful with him. The specialist’s assessment is that because it was a graft into the knee – he’d injured his cruciate before – we have to stick rigidly to the plan of almost a year out of action.”
