London, Nov. 25 (ANI): After staying out for over an year, Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has fully recovered from knee operation but the club is not rushing him into kicking the ball.
Hargreaves recently fought back from operations on both knees and a period of rehabilitation in the States.
Hargreaves put on a public display to show he is at least on course for a return to action in the New Year when he trained with his United team-mates at Carrington on Tuesday, The Sun reports.
Man U boss Alex Ferguson hoped to have Hargreaves back for tonight's Champions League clash with Besiktas.
But the club is in no rush to play the 28-year-old.
Ferguson believes the England player just needs the belief to go for it.
"It's difficult to say when he will be fit. We're not getting an answer to that. It is a confidence thing to know when he is ready and that will be sooner or later," he said. (ANI)
