Manchester United striker Louis Saha is delighted with the early weeks of his latest comeback from injury.

"It has been such a long time since I was in the starting line-up and it felt good to be in there," Saha told L'Equipe after Sunday's victory over Blackburn Rovers. "I was in the starting XI against Roma, but that day I was not at my best.

"I took advantage of the Wayne Rooney injury, but that is why a whole squad is useful.

"It went smoothly against Blackburn. I won't complain about failing to score because the most important thing is the team won."
