Man Utd midfielder Fletcher not bothered about displaying medals

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher admits he doesn't have his trophies on display.

Step into his house and the Manchester United ace reckons no one would even know he was a footballer.

There's a gold medal and a Hampden portrait for him after he reaches his landmark 50 caps tally.

Fletch, 26, has NOTHING to show for being a top-level player - which is just the way he likes it.

He told the Scottish Sun: "It's always a nice moment when you reach these milestones in your career.

"To be honest my primary concern is the points and winning the game rather than me winning my 50th cap. That's something I will think about afterwards.

"I don't keep any of my medals on display. My mum has them all. I'm not one for having things on display and if you came to my house you'd have no idea I was a footballer. There are no strips or medals or anything like that.

"They do mean a lot to me although during my career it's a case of enjoying victories and then asking myself what can I do next.

"If I had them on display it would be like I was sitting back and saying 'look what I've won. Great.'

"I'm proud of what I've achieved, but there is always more that can be done. When I do look back on my career I will remember the moments, definitely.

"I think it is something you pick up at Manchester United, although some is from myself."
