Tomasz Kuszczak has confirmed that he will be leaving Manchester United summer. After unsurprisingly failing to displace Edwin Van der Sar as our number one and David De Gea all but signed as our future number one, the Pole is no longer happy to warm the bench.
Kuszczak has become increasingly petulant as his frustration has grown. On the morning of United’s game against Fulham a couple of months ago, he was in the papers complaining about his current situation.
“I will definitely leave the club,” he said. “My time in Manchester is coming to an end. I worked a lot in five years and never played as much as I wanted. It’s a shame the coach never gave me a serious opportunity.”
Hours later he was named in the starting line up, so it wasn’t the best preparation for an important game.
The last game he played for us was against Blackburn on the day we won the 19th title, with Sir Alex wanting to protect Van der Sar for the European Cup final. He had a poor game and made stupid mistakes.
I can’t imagine there will be many reds that miss him, particularly after another complaint today, but all the best for the future Tomasz.
“I haven’t spoken with Alex Ferguson,” he said. “He has told me nothing. He never tells me anything. I don’t know if I can stick it any more. I have some offers and we will see what happens with them. I think I will stay in England. I have been in the country for seven years and people here know what I can do.”
