Obertan: Injury lay-off helped me settle at Man Utd

Gabriel Obertan says there have been advantages to his slow start at Manchester United.

The French winger has only just started playing first team football for United after recovering from a back injury.

He told manutd.com: "After four months of just waiting and resting, I've been really looking forward to starting my career as a Manchester United player. I wanted to feel part of the squad, part of the group, and be involved in the games. So I'm feeling really good right now.

"I think there were definitely some positives to it, and even though I was frustrated at not playing I tried to look at it in a positive way. In my disappointment, there were good things I could take from it. I got to know everybody at the club, I could begin to understand how things work here and get settled in England."
