Kuszczak Wants to Play – Or Leave United
It looks like Manchester United will definitely be looking for a new goalkeeper this summer after their number two keeper said that he will leave Old Trafford if he isn’t made the first choice after van der sar retires.
United have already signed Anders Lindegaard from Norwegian club Aaeslund, and the Danish international will officially join this month. However, Sir Alex Ferguson has been linked to a number of other goalkeepers to replace Edwin van der sar in the United goal, including Maarten Stekelenburg, Manuel Neur and David de Gea, with at least one of them sure to join the Red Devils. Therefore, Tomasz Kuszczak will find it increasingly hard to gain a first team spot at all.
The Polish keeper said:
“Of course I would like regular football. I need to see what the boss wants to do, whether he wants to play me or sell me. But definitely I want to play.”
“Every player has his ambitions and I have mine. I have sat on the bench for five years and I need a chance to play more than one game in two or three months. You can’t prove anything like that.”
It must be frustrating to see new players coming in and taking a place that you have worked for and waited for for so long – five and a half year in Kuszczak’s case, and with only 22 appearances in his time at the club, his patience is obviously wearing thin. The 28 year-old started his first game this season in a rare occasion against his former club, West Brom, but the occasional starts here and there, sometimes in the Carling Cup or F.A Cup will not be enough to persuade him to stay, especially with young Ben Amos coming through the ranks. His career isn’t looking very stable at United, and his departure would guarantee Ferguson going into the market for a new goalkeeper.
