Ruud Returns For Sir Alex’s Statue Unveiling

Ruud van Nistelrooy has revealed today that he will be returning to Manchester for the first time since leaving the club in the summer of 2006.

After a break down in his relationship with the manager, our brilliant former striker has since admitted that the pair have worked on their differences and are on good terms again.

Van Nistelrooy has today revealed that he will be at Old Trafford on November 23rd for the unveiling of Sir Alex Ferguson’s statue at Old Trafford. He will stick around for the following day to watch United take on QPR.

Out of interest, eight years ago yesterday Van Nistelrooy scored the penalty against Arsenal to help bring an end to their 49 game unbeaten run.

Welcome back, Ruud.

    @costas – lol. yes we are well stocked in that department, but I was looking forward to shinji bedding in well before christmas. This may be good thing for fletcher, anderson and cleverly to get more game time. And diamond may be abandoned for a bit.

    anyone doing any score predictions for the weekend? I’m going for a 2-1 win for united.

    I fancy Utd a lot don’t rate rent boys defense very highly Luiz is a muppet gets caught out of position all the time,dives in and gives away bad free kicks,also don’t rate Torres,rent boys don’t really have many options up front putting all the eggs so to speak in Torres is a mistake
    Just don’t think the team is all that,sure they beat Spurs and Gunners away but don’t rate Le Arse very highly and that old Arse centre half playing for Spurs(sorry gone completely blank) was atrocious last week pretty well handed the rent boys game on a plate

    Fav utd striker without a doubt, rarely scored outside 18 yrd box but in around 6 he was lethal and posessed that rare ability to be just where he needed to be to smash it home

    I haven’t got the voice to shout loud enough to thank this magnificent player when he was with us !
    He made an exquisit job scoring goals from every corner of our attack but I cannot forget that goal vs Fulham.
    Cheers Ruud and you’r always welcome !
