Sir Alex Ferguson admits Manchester United still do not have a time frame for Darren Fletcher's possible return to action.
The Scot has not played since the end of November when it was revealed he would be taking an indefinite break from football because of a chronic inflammatory bowel condition.
Fletcher has been at Carrington to see his team-mates, but Ferguson admits his return is not due.
"He's been coming into training for the last few days, just getting himself out of the house really," said Ferguson.
"It is difficult to put a time on it because it is not one we can assess accurately.
"It is what it is and hopefully time will be the answer."
