"Boat drinks"

I’m not one for slagging off any player that’s still plys his trade at my beloved club but even my patience has been tested to breaking point by United’s thrid choice keeper.

Sky Sports reports:

Tomasz Kuszczak says he is ‘angry and disappointed’ at the way he has been treated by Manchester United after failing to secure a summer move.

The Poland international goalkeeper had been hoping to leave the Red Devils during the close season in search of regular first-team football.

Kuszczak has made just 61 appearances during five years at Old Trafford and is now third choice behind new arrival David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard.

The 29-year-old was linked with a return to former club West Bromwich Albion and had expressed an interest in staying in England.

However, Kuszczak claims United wanted a £4million transfer fee and he is unhappy that he was unable to clinch a transfer before the window closed last month.

“I am angry and disappointed with the way I am treated,” said Kuszczak in The Sun.

“I had a few good offers. The problem was the club who wanted to sell me for £4m.”

Kuszczak’s attitude is typical from a player who’s never really convinced either the manager nor many fans that he could be anything more than an understudy.

Last season some Reds were impressed with Kuszczak’s performance in the Carling Cup against Scunthorpe, but I felt he looked dodgy at times.

Then there was the game against where he seemed determined to make even the easiest back pass turn into a drama. What should have been an easy game was made more edgy by the ineptitude of the ‘Pole In Goal’ who seemed bereft of any confidence and decision making ability.

Kuszczak also seems to have a strained relationship with some of his defenders, particularly Nemanja Vidic, who he’s often argued with during games.

While I understand the frustrations of a player not getting first team football, I have little sympathy for Kuszczak, he earns good money at Old Trafford and cost the club £4 million which they have a right to want to earn back.

Spitting his dummy out and criticising the club in the press is not the way to go about it, Kuszczak could knuckle down and try and prove his worth, rather than moaning and acting like child.

His latest actions just go to prove he’s not worthy playing for United and despite the fact, following his outburst he doesn’t deserve to be given the easy option, I feel now’s the time to get rid of him and accept even a small offer.
