Aged twenty-eight, Dar­ren Fletcher was the old­est player in the Manchester United squad for their clash with Super League side Gal­ata­s­ary in the UEFA Cham­pi­ons League on Tues­day. The Scot­land inter­na­tional has made almost 200 Premier League appear­ances for Manchester United since he made his first team debut back in March 2003.

Born and bred in Edin­burgh, Dar­ren Fletcher pro­gressed through the ranks of Manchester United’s Youth Academy and the dynamic area-to-area mid­field play­maker has won four Barclays Premier Leagues, one FA Cup, two Foot­ball League Cups, the UEFA Cham­pi­ons League and the FIFA Club World Cup while with the Old Traf­ford club. A much appre­ci­ated player, the long serving Manchester United stal­wart put pen to paper on a new four-year con­tract with The Reds in March last year.

Dar­ren Fletcher: “I´m twenty-eight and one of the most senior play­ers in the Manchester United squad. But it’s a role I´m used to with Scot­land; you talk to the younger play­ers, give them encour­age­ment. I appre­ci­ated that sort of thing when I was young. I had a little word in my ear; noth­ing much, you don’t want to force too much inform­a­tion; but I really appre­ci­ated those words of advice.”
