Rio And Hargreaves Closing On Comeback

There has been some rumour that Rio Ferdinand might even be available against Burnley tomorrow but he won't be. No reason to be disappointed though as Sir Alex confirms that he's closer than ever, along with Owen Hargreaves who has had no setbacks recently.

'They both took part in some work and Rio in particular is not too far away now.'

Still no timescale on it though which is probably wise. We endured enough disappointments because of optimistic estimations of return dates, at least now it will be a pleasant surprise if they are involved. Hopefully we'll see both on the pitch in January.

Aren't there "Hargreaves close to comeback" type-headlines about once a month?

Hopefully there won't be any more setbacks in their quest to be fully fit.

I hope the club take as long as is necessary with hargreaves. The pressure that will be on him to perform when he comes back will be immense. We've definately missed his energy in the middle, but if he is anything less than fully fit and puts in below par performances the usual dipsticks will be out in force attempting to kill his confidence by proclaiming that he'll never be the same and that both he and united are in terminal decline. I'd rather they took their time to give him the best chance of playing well and staying fit in the long term.
