Fans ask, Fletch answers

MUTV gave Reds followers the chance to put their questions to Darren Fletcher recently. Here are the midfielder's answers...


What have you learned from playing alongside Paul Scholes?
I learn something from Scholesy every day in training and I still think he's the best midfielder in the Premier League. His range of passing, his touch, his vision and his control are just fantastic. I also admire the way he conducts himself off the pitch; he keeps a low profile and is very much a family man.

Did you have any hestitation when you were offered a new contract?
Not at all. To know that you're wanted at Manchester United by the club and the manager for another few years is a great feeling. It's the best place to play football and as long as you're getting your fair share of games and feeling as if you're playing your part, then it's great.

How do you relax away from football?
I just spend as much time as I can with my family and friends and generally try and get as much rest as possible. We have a very hectic schedule at United with mid-week and weekend games so everything you do is geared towards getting yourself prepared for each match.
