Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been speaking to the press ahead of his side’s Premier League clash with Everton this weekend and has given the following injury updates regarding his team:
Ashley Young has recovered from a knee injury and is fit to take part. Young has been out since January 13th when he picked up the injury against Liverpool.
Phil Jones, who has been suffering from shingles, could be cleared to play.
Ferguson spoke about his annoyance that details regarding Phil Jones condition had been given to the press by England u21 manager Stuart Pearce, saying
“So far everyone has come back fit from their excursions into the rest of the world. The only one we’re waiting on is Chicharito. I’ve not had anything back that says he’s not fit so I expect everyone to be fit from their games.
“On our own front, Ashley Young is fit again, Michael Carrick should be okay and Phil Jones will hopefully be okay, irrespective of Stuart Pearce coming out and declaring he had shingles – which we thought was doctor confidence. We’re disappointed in that, but it’s not anything serious for the boy. It’s a mild condition that has surfaced but he should be okay.”
