Sir Alex Ferguson says Ryan Giggs could yet make Manchester United’s Champions League tie with AC Milan on 10 March. United head into the Old Trafford tie 3-2 ahead on aggregate after the first leg in Milan but will miss injury victims Rio Ferdinand, Anderson and Owen Hargreaves, together with suspended midfielder Michael Carrick
“Ryan still has the injury to his arm,” said Ferguson of 36-year-old Giggs.
“But we are taking the plate out at the end of the week and he will be in full training after that, which is good news.”
Giggs fractured his right arm in a challenge with Aston Villa’s Steve Sidwell earlier this month. The Welshman will need clearance to play in a lightweight cast and could yet be pressed into a central midfield berth with just Paul Scholes, Darren Fletcher and Darron Gibson available to Ferguson for the Milan tie.
