Cattermole went under the knife last month after an injury-plagued campaign, ruling him out for the final part of this term.

He is still on crutches but the surgery was successful and the target is now to be fit for the start of next season, and the midfielder is ready to work hard in his rehabilitation rather than enjoy a relaxing summer.

"It's no golf or summer holidays for me, but I'll look forward to getting back next season," Cattermole said in the Daily Mirror.

"I've got another couple of weeks on the crutches then hopefully I'll be back in full training when the lads come back for pre-season.

"My operation went well and my knee's in good condition. I was getting pain there when I was playing and it wouldn't go away so I decided to get it done."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
