‘Twas but a scratch…

More photos from Manchester United’s open training session this morning ahead of their Champions League clash with Marseille tonight, in which Nani participated despite being ruled out ‘until April’ by Sir Alex Ferguson on account of his Carragher-induced shin gash.

Thankfully, it turns out that there was no amputation necessary for the Portuguese w(h)inger…

Simply terrifying

Poor old Sir Alex just can’t get the image of Wes Brown in a bra out of his mind

Also in attendance at United’s training session were the returning Michael’s Owen and Carrick, Owen Hargreaves (who trained with the reserves after undergoing knee surgery in Germany recently) and Ji-Sung Park, though Anderson, Nemanja Vidic, Anders Lindegaard and Jonny Evans were all notable by their absence.

    Thrilled to see Valencia back as United had dearly missed him this season… What he brings to the team is speed, trickery and those deadly balls into the box from the right wing which is vital… He still needs to get playing time under his belt and get those engines of his running again. What concerns me is he that he is looking slow but that is because of the injury… Let’s just hope he does not turn out to be one of those ” Alan Smith ” players… Fingers crossed
