Comeback put on hold…again!
Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves may have to be put his comeback from injury on hold.
The 28-year-old has had operations on both knees in the past year in a bid to cure tendinitis and there were hopes he would be back at the end of September.
But Hargreaves, whose last game was in September 2008, is out of the Audi Cup in Munich, which raises new concerns.
“We had hoped he would be joining us but he is still in rehabilitation,” said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
“He has had major operations on both knees and we are not rushing that.” (BBC Sport)
He has been away so long now it’s almost like he was part of some ancient folklore and for years to come people will discuss the issue in pubs and bars throughout the land “Do you remember a player with long hair, used to play in the midfield, Owen something?”.
On a serious note it does seem like the former Bayern Munich man is struggling to overcome the his tendinitis issues and has worse knees than Ledley King and whilst It would be great to see him back in action one does wonder just how good a shape he will be in and just how prone he is to breaking down again.
