Reports are out that Manchester United striker Michael Owen is confident he will be able to take a full part in pre-season training after recovering from his hamstring injury.
Owen has not played since pulling his hamstring in United’s 2-1 Carling Cup final win over Aston Villa in February.
But an operation has been a success and he is looking forward to United’s pre-season tour, which begins on 12 July.
“The aim is to be doing everything with the lads on the first day of pre-season training,” he said.
“It was a shame to get the injury at Wembley. I thought it was a minor thing at first but it was obviously worse than that.
“But overall I was delighted with my first season at United. I was fit for 43 of the first 44 games.”
