After Peter Schmeichel left the club, Manchester United had a disastrous time trying to find a reliable and consistent number 1, and it was six years after the Great Dane retired that we found a worthy replacement, when Edwin joined us from Fulham.
“I hope it will be a big season for me,” said Kuszczak. “This will be my fifth with the club and I hope to play even more games. My challenge is simple – after Edwin finishes I want to be number one at Manchester United. It’s not easy to sit on the bench – I have many ambitions and I want to keep progressing as a player. Manchester United is a great club and I believe it’s a club I can play at for many years.”
Kuszczak has made 51 appearances for United, including 11 straight matches from November to January last season.
“I knew it was going to be very important for me to prove myself during that time,” he continued. “It was a difficult situation because we had a lot of injuries but I enjoyed every game. To have a good run of matches really helped me with my form and gave me a lot of confidence. I want to become a better goalkeeper and learn new things and hopefully I will get more opportunities this season.”
