Manchester United have confirmed Owen Hargreaves remains in Colorado receiving treatment to his troublesome knees.
United have made it clear that the he is still in Colorado, under the care of surgeon Richard Steadman.
Hargreaves is "still receiving treatment in the US for a tendonitis problem that has limited him to one substitute appearance since September 2008," the club said.
Ferguson has been either unable or unwilling to offer any sense as to whether Hargreaves is on the mend after his latest period under the care of Steadman.
"Nope", was his answer on the subject when asked more than two weeks ago whether the defensive midfielder was back.
