Man Utd boss will take it slow with Fletcher
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted to see midfielder Darren Fletcher back on the field.
Fletcher returned to action for United in a benefit match against Aberdeen last night.
The Scotland skipper had been out of action since November last year due to a chronic inflammatory bowel condition.
Ferguson told MUTV: "It's been quiet progress for the boy.
"He joined in training a couple of weeks ago and it's one of those situations where you say: 'Let's see how he does because he has had a really difficult time in the last year'.
"Therefore, I wasn't really placing too much hope in it but let's see how he does.
"He's got to the stage now where he feels he needs a game. I let him join Scotland this week but he wanted a game so I said: 'Come to Aberdeen and join up afterwards'.
"I'll give him 20 to 25 minutes."
