Rafael And VdS Will Be Back Soon

United's injury problems are easing: Rafael and Edwin van der Sar should both be back soon while Michael Owen's injury is not as bad as it first seemed. Our third choice striker limped off the pitch after 20 minutes against Wolfsburg and though he'll miss the Sunderland game he's almost fine.

'It's not as bad as we first thought,' Sir Alex said.

'There was precaution attached to it, and he should be available next week.

'He missed training and we maybe should have left him out [against Wolfsburg]. But we wanted him to play and he wanted to play.

'He'll be fit for Bolton, and we're pleased with that. On Michael`s part, it was precaution, which is understandable given his history.'

He also said that Van der Sar is close to a return while Rafael is training well - still no mention of the mysterious Obertan though so we have no information where his recovery program is at.

Will be good to see VdS back in goals - he such a commanding presence at the back that silly mistakes hopefully wont happen anymore.
I do like Foster - but he will never be of the quality that we have with VdS - I just hope Fergie looks and finds a replacement for him very soon!
