After reports emerged last week claiming Tomasz likened his situation at United with that of a slave, he has spoken out insisting he did not use the words being attributed to him
In a statement released this morning, Kuszczak denies using the word “slave” or even implying that the club has been treating him like a slave. Claiming he has “upmost respect for the club”, the third choice keeper insists that he has been “misinterpreted or misreported” by Polish newspaper SuperExpress
“In response to recent press reports in the English media, I would like to set the record straight by clarifying that I did not use the word `slave’ in a recent interview I gave to the Polish newspaper SuperExpress, about my current position at Manchester United Football Club,”
“At no point during the interview did I use the word `slave’, or imply that the club was treating me like a `slave’. Indeed what I did say has either been misinterpreted or misreported. It is important to clear this misinformation up because I have the utmost respect for the club and have not described my relationship with the club in this way because it is simply not the case.”
