Owen Hargreaves was registered to play for Manchester United drawing the group stages of the Champions League, which finished during the first week of December.
The manager has today claimed he hopes Hargreaves will be ready for the end of January.
“Owen’s doing a bit better this week, and he’s coming along slowly,” said Ferguson. “Hopefully he’ll be back at the end of January.”
