Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is unsure of a comeback date for midfielder Darren Fletcher.

Whilst Ferguson insisted the Old Trafford outfit would provide Fletcher with “all the time he needs”, there must now be some doubt over the Scotland star ever playing at the highest level again.

“He has not started training with us,” confirmed the United boss.

“He has obviously got great challenges ahead.

“We are happy to be patient but he won’t be starting the season.

“It is unfortunate because he is such a magnificent professional and such a nice lad. If it doesn’t work for him, he knows he has a position at the club anyway.”

United unveiled new signings Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell this morning.

Ferguson is keen to add one more new face to his squad before the quest to regain the Premier League title from Manchester City begins next month.

“But always in a European Championship or World Cup year, there is a delay in the transfer industry.

NYRB still looking for a striker as Rodgers still ineligible | MLS News | Tribal Football

New York Red Bull head coach Hans Backe has revealed the club is still searching for a striker in the absence of Luke Rodgers.

New York Red Bull head coach Hans Backe has revealed the club is still searching for a striker in the absence of Luke Rodgers.

The Englishman is still ineligible to play in North America due to visa issues and although the club is keen for him to re-join the squad, Backe has made it clear that the hunt will go on for a possible replacement.

“We hope for that. But you never know. But that’s the target of course, to get one quality guy in up front,” said Backe.

“If we trade for one or to buy one for Europe, we don’t really know yet. It takes time. It’s not overnight. You do these trades or buying players for Europe, it takes time.”

Backe has ex-San Jose Earthquakes and Colorado Rapids striker Quincy Amarikwa on trial at the moment but says he has to cast more of an eye over the 24-year old before making a decision.

“He came up to play the reserve game, and we said, OK, let’s train with us until Saturday,” Backe added.

“He played quite OK (with the reserves). His runs in the attacking game are good. Technically, he is good enough, I must say. But it’s as I told him, I’ve only seen him in one game with the reserves; I need to see him four or five times in a few sessions.”

DC United head coach Ben Olsen has spoken highly of English midfielder Lewis Neal and what he has added to the playing group this season.

The 30-year old former Stoke City, Preston North End and Shrewsbury Town man joined the Eastern Conference league leaders from Orlando City in mid-March and has been a key part of the improvement of the Washington outfit.

“He’s a versatile, smart kid who had been through a lot,” Olsen told The Washington Times.

“Not many of you know Lewis Neal; he’s been around a long time. He’s been in some real games over in England, and he’s a really nice addition to the group.”

And Neal, who has made eight appearances for DC thus far, is hoping he can contribute to a possible MLS title with the club this season.

“For me to come here in my first season and [potentially] win a championship would be one of the best experiences of my career,” Neal said.

“It would be an unbelievable achievement for me if I was able to experience that here with United.”
