Fletcher to Miss Remainder of Season

Fletcher to Miss Remainder of Season

Darren Fletcher`s fight to shake off the debilitating chronic bowel problem that has blighted his career has taken another step.

After getting back into first team action earlier this season, the club have announced that the 28 year-old Scottish international has had corrective surgery on the problem that will see him miss the remainder of the season.

Speaking about the situation, the club has issued a statement that reads,

"This was a planned procedure. While it is frustrating for both Darren and the club that he won`t be able to contribute further during this campaign, this decision has been taken in the best interests of his long term health."

"We look forward to him returning next season with this problem firmly behind him."


Our best wishes go to Darren and we hope that the operation proves to be a success.

It was nice to see him back playing again but alas it was too good to be true. Hopefully he does return next season with this problem behind him but from my understanding his condition doesn't just go away. All I know is we need a fletch and his industry and defensive ability in midfield and if there's the slightest doubt fletch won't return, which I firmly believe there is, we should be looking at a wanyama or Strootman to fill that massive gap.

Shame for the lad looks like he might have reached the end of the line on his career. From my understanding of his problem this surgery means removal of parts of his large intestine which can never be good. Just hope and pray he recovers enough to play again. If not can only thank him for the years of sacrifice he's put in for the team even putting his own health at risk a true unsung hero of football.
