Sir Alex Ferguson plans to revert Alan Smith back into a striker next season. It`ll be interesting to see how things develop now that Van the Man seems almost definite to exit Old Trafford. After his bad injury last season when playing against Liverpool Smith will be welcomed back with open arms by the Old Trafford faithful.

With the return from injury of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this means that Sir Alex has a fair amount of choice in the striker department, though to lose someone of van Nistelrooy`s quality will surely impact on United`s ability to score goals.

Smith was born in Rothwell, Leeds, and got his start with the England School Boys Centre For Excellence but became home sick. He then joined with his hometown and future club, when he entered the Leeds United Centre of Excellence. Smith eventually joined up with Leeds United properly in March 1998.
Some former players have likened Smith to the next Mark Hughes. Since joining United in 2004 he`s caught the imagination of the Reds` fans. Unfortunately his first season was injury hit, and of course he was out for part of last season. Let`s hope that`s all behind him as the 2006/07 season gets underway.
