Obertan Might Start On Saturday

Obertan Might Start On Saturday

After impressing on his first team debut at Barnsley, Gabriel Obertan might be in line to make his first Premier League appearance for United. According to the press, Sir Alex is considering starting the French winger on Saturday.

The Telegraph reckons there's every chance of Obertan starting against Blackburn Rovers after he put in a good performance at Oakwell. With Nani still infuriating and Giggs getting older, a quality wide man is something we'd certainly appreciate and having seen Obertan completing 90 minutes on Tuesday I don't think he's not fit enough to be called into action again.

Yet these reports still seem a little far-fetched to me: it's not Fergie's way to overtax players who missed a lot of time through injury. Obertan should have a place on the bench as he looks capable of adding something else to our play, with being capable of operating on both wings as well as through the middle. But it would be a huge surprise if he were to be selected ahead of Giggs or Nani on Saturday.

No way Fergie will start him, and right after the 'pool match at that! Nani will get a chance with Valencia, hope we see Ando and Fletch in the center!
