Nani to resume training

Sir Alex has revealed to ManUtd.com that Nani could be back in training this week, while Phil Jones is available for Monday's Barclays Premier League encounter with Fulham.

The Portuguese winger played the last 15 minutes of the home defeat to Athletic Club in Europe but missed the away leg and the league wins over West Brom and Wolves after picking up an injury in training. Jones, meanwhile, was under the weather last week and not rushed back for the comfortable victory at Molineux on Sunday.

"There are no problems with injuries," Sir Alex told ManUtd.com. "It’s much better now. There was Jones getting that bout of ‘flu but he’s back. Jones was actually back on Friday but we didn’t risk him on Sunday. He’ll be available [for the Fulham game].

"So they’re all training apart from Nani, who should not be far away and might start training this week, while Anderson and Michael Owen are the only other ones out. Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher are obviously still long term."

Sir Alex was speaking as part of his exclusive interview with the next issue of Inside United, the official club magazine.
