As reported by the club itself on its website , the Scottish footballer, 27, will not return to play football for an indefinite period due to ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease which is chronic. In the press release states that Fletcher takes a while in the case of this disease and has not opted for down your 'continuing desire to play and his loyalty to his club and his country " , which according to United, "has probably committed the possibilities for optimizing their own health and welfare ".

In Europe things are not going better, and after Christmas will play the second club competition, the Champions League after finishing third in a group that was the clear favorite.
