Hargreaves Still Not Fit

Owen Hargreaves admitted that he's struggling to be fit for Wednesday's Champions League game at Sporting.

Sir Alex Ferguson has earlier claimed that Rooney and Hargreaves will be available and while it looks certain that the striker will be involved, the Canadian-born midfielder is a doubt.

'Its okay, I have never really had this injury before so this is new territory,' he told the Press Association today. 'I can't say for certain but it looks as though I won't be ready for Wednesday because I have not trained.'

'I thought I would be fit to play for England in the Israel game, then the Russia game and then Everton, but I've still not done it. I have to take it day by day so hopefully I will be fit for the weekend.'

''It is frustrating. I missed pre-season then I had a run of games and I was really enjoying it. It is just disappointing to suffer something so niggly. But I think these injuries come from last season when I broke my leg.'

He would have been a great asset, as we all know that he was bought especially for the Champions League... but so be it. Hopefully he'll be able to play against Chelsea!
