Rio Is Making Progress

Rio Ferdinand will not feature on Saturday: the big man is still out with the back injury that's been troubling him for a while now. But Sir Alex is upbeat about the progress of his recovery, insisting that he could be back soon enough.

'Rio is coming along. He is making progress but it's difficult with back injuries.

'Nature sometimes helps you, but we are looking forward to him coming back.'

Certainly we are because the defending this season has been so far from the standard we've grown accustomed to that it's threatening to undermine our entire season.

To be fair Wes has done a great job but Rio's return would surely be welcomed.

If he is due back "soon enough", then a date would have been set, no? From that one could surmise that the definition of "soon enough" differs slightly from most people's interpretations.

Yes come back soon Rio I really miss seeing your rubbish defending. The sooner you return the sooner United start losing more games.
