Man Utd striker will be fit for pre-season training

Manchester United striker Michael Owen is confident he will be fit for pre-season training.

Owen is recovering from a hamstring injury that he suffered in United’s 2-1 Carling Cup final win over Aston Villa in February.

“The aim is to be doing everything with the lads on the first day of pre-season training,” he said.

“It was a shame to get the injury at Wembley. I thought it was a minor thing at first but it was obviously worse than that.

“But overall I was delighted with my first season at United. I was fit for 43 of the first 44 games.”
