Darren Fletcher backs Manchester United to reach Champions League

Darren Fletcher backs Manchester United to earn a spot in the Champions League with a strong finish to the season.

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher has backed the team to secure Champions League qualification this season.

The Premier League champions are currently seventh in the table but Fletcher is confident that an impressive finish to the campaign will help them claim one of the top four spots.

"It's all about character now, no doubt about it," Fletcher told Sky Sports News. "The team has been written off, everyone has had so much to say about the situation and it's now time for the players to step up and prove people wrong and to finish the season strongly.

"As I keep saying let's finish the season strongly, get in the Champions League - we're still in the Champions League this season as well and our form has been fantastic - and let's carry that through to next season."

United host Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

It took almost 12 months, but Fletcher returned as a substitute, replacing Paul Scholes, against Galatasaray in September 2012.
