After making his comeback through the Reserves over the past few weeks, it has been confirmed today that Wes Brown will play no further part in the season.

During our brilliant Double winning year last season Brown played in more games than anyone else, scoring against Liverpool before assisting our only goal in the Champions League final.

This season has been a different story though, with him last playing for us back in January when trying to overcome his injuries.

Given the problems we’ve had at right-back this season, with Gary Neville, Rafael and John O’Shea all suffering from injuries too, it is bitterly disappointed to learn we won’t be strengthened in this position as we get to the final games.

Brown has played in seven league games for us this season, as well as two European Cup games, and has represented England four times. United will probably appeal for him to collect a medal if we are to win the Premiership this season.
