Darren Fletcher Quotes

Scottish Football player, plays for Manchester United in Premier League


Darren Barr Fletcher is a product of United's youth academy. He initially struggled to break into the first team but now regularly features in the midfield. He usually plays in central midfield or right midfield but can provide cover for the defence as well. The industrious player also captained the Scotland national team in the absence of then regular captain Barry Ferguson, making Fletcher one of the youngest players ever to captain Scotland at full international level. With Ferguson banned from international football after a breach of regulations, Fletcher was given the captain's armband in August 2009.

Post your comment about Darren Fletcher

 It has been a rollercoaster. There have been times when we've thought the run was gone and then we've come back late in games. Everyone keeps talking about the unbeaten run. It's fantastic and gives you confidence knowing you're on this run and looking to set a new club record. But the most important thing — the thing all the players are focused on and bothered about — is winning the league. We'd rather have that than maintaining an unbeaten run.

 When we kick off, Wayne will be the fantastic player we have come to know down the past few years. He is a tremendous player and a real talisman for the team. And I think playing for Manchester United ­definitely brings out the best in him. We all know Wayne’s game and he knows ours. We have played together and trained together for a long time now, for five or six years. Wayne’s form last season was ­fantastic and we obviously hope it will continue this season, which I’m sure it will, because he is simply a top-class player.

Related Quotes: Wayne Rooney
 Last season, Wayne really took on the responsibility of being the main goalscorer, with the departure of certain players. The manager set him the challenge and he really took it on. He is such a determined character and I’m sure we will see the type of performances we have always seen from him at Old Trafford in a United shirt.
