Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed captain Gary Neville is finally ready to resume full training, having not played for the club since March.

Ferguson told Manchester United Radio: "Gary will be training with us this week for the first time. It's pleasing news because it's been a long time for the lad.

"He's been unlucky and just had one injury on top of another. It's just an accumulation of small injuries that has set him back.

"Hopefully he's now on the mend and we're looking forward to having him back."
