Tomasz Kuszczak has again spoken about his frustration at not being allowed to leave Manchester United following options to join other clubs on loan.
Towards the end of last season, as United battled to claim that 19th league title, Kuszczak spoke to the papers about his desire to leave the club and become a #1 elsewhere.
This season he is third in pecking order behind David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard, after the club rejected offers for him to leave on loan in the summer. United had no interest in loaning him out though and no club met our asking price.
An opportunity to join Leeds United on loan arose last week and Kuszczak is frustrated that he wasn’t allowed to join them.
“I’ve become a slave to Manchester,” he said. “I’m frustrated but I don’t want to slander or criticise Ferguson. It’s not my style. I’ve talked to Ferguson recently. I asked him to let me leave the club now, before the January transfer window. I told him I want to play and get back into the national team, because Euro 2012 is just around the corner – but it seems he doesn’t care. The possibility of a two-month loan to Leeds United came up two weeks later. The club blocked it. It was a glimmer of hope for me. It would have reminded the Poland manager about me – but I didn’t get the club’s approval. I have respect for Ferguson because, for me, he’s a great manager, but I hope he will let me go in January.”
If it’s any consolation Kus, we hope he’ll let you go in January too…
