One in, one out for United

Twos ships...

Premier League - Valencia trains, Park blow for Utd - Yahoo! Eurosport
Manchester United have been boosted by Antonio Valencia's return to training only five months after he suffered a horrific broken ankle in a Champions League draw with Rangers - although fellow winger Park Ji-sung was ruled out for a month with a hamstring problem.

...Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that he had begun training with the reserve squad, tempering the blow that Park would miss another month following his absence on South Korea Asian Cup duty.
Don't get your hopes up for Valencia's return to Premier League action just yet. In fact, I would expect that we'd see both returning about the same time.

For United, that means that Nani is unlikely to be rotated (reverse-jinx!) and that Giggs is going to have to keep playing regularly even as matches start to come thick and fast. SAF has been reluctant to play Giggs more than once a week over the last few seasons, so maybe we see Obertan now and again. Though he's never produced much in his limited chances, the young Frenchman will be an interesting option for fantasy managers with his 4.76 price tag.
