Owen close to Red Devils return

03 December 2010 01:00
Manchester United striker Michael Owen could be back in time for the festive fixtures. Owen has returned to full training following a hamstring injury that has kept him out of action since October. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson told MUTV: "He is doing very well. He took part in the football side of it yesterday. "I would say he's two weeks away [from playing]. We need to make sure he does a good stint of football training before we bring him into the games." However Owen Hargreaves is no nearer a return from his hamstring problem. Ferguson added: "It's a bad blow for the lad and it's hard to take, given the length of time he's been out and the amount of football he's missed."
