Sir Alex Ferguson today confirmed that we are still playing a waiting game when it comes to Darren Fletcher’s future as he battles ulcerative colitis, a bowel condition.

“We’ll wait and see,” Ferguson told MUTV. “The boy’s trying very hard to get back to his level. It’s not going to be easy but we’ll give him every possible chance and see how he does. He kept himself active towards the end of last season. He replaced Scholes as the reserve team coach when Scholes decided to come back into the fold. Darren’s a terrific lad and we all hope that he can come back soon.”
