Obertan in action for Manchester United
Manchester United new-boy Gabriel Obertan will make his long-awaited appearance in Red Devils colours at Hyde tonight.
Obertan was snapped up from Bordeaux in the summer by Sir Alex Ferguson, who had been attracted by the player's potential and received positive reports from the player's club boss, former United defender Laurent Blanc.
The Frenchman's career has stalled in recent times due to injury and almost as soon as Obertan had completed his £3million move to the Old Trafford outfit, Ferguson revealed he would be sidelined for a matter of months after developing spinal problems.
However, the player is now ready for action and will make his bow in a Manchester Senior Cup tie against Oldham this evening.
Also included is Brazilian full-back Rafael Da Silva.
The teenager made a significant impression with United last term, amassing 28 first-team appearances and scoring a memorable goal at Arsenal last November.
His development was also halted though after he underwent shoulder surgery which has kept him out this season so far.
Rafael will be joined in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side by brother Fabio, who has already been called upon three times by Ferguson this term.
