Man Utd's Hargreaves admits he may've aggravated knee problems

Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves admits he may've made his knee problems worse by pushing himself in his first season at Old Trafford.

Hargreaves is only weeks away from a first team return at United after over 18 months out with knee injury.

He told The Times: "My first season was stop-start because I already had the problem. It wasn't as serious as it was at the end of my second season, but I guess I never understood the extent of what was wrong. I wasn't the only one, but I just didn't want to stop playing.

"The club had spent a lot of time and money acquiring me and I didn't want to be out straightaway. In hindsight, playing made it worse, but it was a learning process. I've learnt to trust my intuition."
