Man Utd Goalkeeper To Be Sold In January

By on October 28, 2011

Manchester United will sell their 29 year-old Polish goalkeeper, Tomasz Kuszczak in a cut-price deal in January with it very clear that he will not see any first team football for United in the near future.

The purchases of David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard as well as the emergence of 21 year-old former United youth goalkeeper Ben Amos have left Kuszczak as the fourth choice goalkeeper, missing out on first team action, even in Carling Cup ties.

Since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2006, he has played only 61 times for United with only 32 of those appearances in the League. United have failed to sell the goalkeeper before because of their £4 million valuation of him but with his contract running out during 2012, Sir Alex Ferguson is prepared to place a lower price tag on Kuszczak to allow clubs such as West Brom to reignite their interest in him.

The player himself is more than happy to leave the club, having already decided on his future in Aril when he said:

“I’m definitely leaving the club. My time in Manchester is coming to an end. I’ve worked hard for five years, but I never played as much as I wanted. It’s a shame the manager didn’t really give me a chance. I always believed I can be Edwin Van Der Sar’s successor. Unfortunately, Sir Alex has decided differently”

Despite owning three Premier League winners medals, United had to apply for special dispensation for all three as Kuszczak hadn’t played enough times in the season to recieve a medal automatically. He has however, won two League Cup’s with United as well as the UEFA Champions League in 2008 despite not playing a prominent part in the latter’s squad.

Leaving Manchester United will surely be a very healthy career move for him, and would definitely allow the undoubtedly talented ‘keeper’s career to get back on track after five years of very few chances in the first team.

      what??he’s better than de gea??you must be joking!even DDG made a couple of mistakes but his contribution,his confident,calmness, deflection saves in are way better than probably not watching a lot of manutd games when he played..

    Kuszczak is good keeper his problem is VDS, he was too long on the bench and needs some first team action…DDG is weakest team of Man Utd…He cost 9 times price of Kuszczak!!!??? 9 Kuszczaks in goal would do much much better than DDG…
