Give me a break – Kuszczak

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

MANCH­ESTER UNITED re­serve goal­keeper To­masz Kuszczak (pic­tured) has crit­i­cised the club’s num­ber one Ed­win Van der Sar for fail­ing to of­fer him help or en­cour­age­ment.

“I must say this, and Ed­win won’t like this too much for sure, but he doesn’t help me too much,” the Pol­ish in­ter­na­tional told the club’s own MUTV tele­vi­sion chan­nel.

“I have told him a few times al­ready to give me some more ad­vice be­cause he’s more ex­pe­ri­enced and got many more games un­der his belt.”

“I say to him ‘you have to give me some­thing more be­cause I like to know what I do wrong’,” he added.

“I like to watch other peo­ple be­cause do­ing that I can take some good from the ad­vice I get.

“But I don’t know, maybe Ed­win doesn’t like me.

You’ll have to ask him.”

Van der Sar, 39, has been with United since 2005 and has twice won the Cham­pi­ons League, once each with Ajax and United. Kuszczak joined from West Bromwich Al­bion in 2006 but has made only 35 first team starts. The 27-year-old Pole in­di­cated he was find­ing the lack of games dif­fi­cult to en­dure.

“The ques­tion is how long do you want to wait?” he asked.

“Be­cause I try ev­ery day but it’s a slow process.

“It’s not so easy. I feel great in the po­si­tion but I’m not called up and some­times you think ‘OK, it’s dif­fi­cult you have to wait.“

“But the ques­tion is how long. I’ve al­ready waited three-and-a-half years.

“I will wait longer but my am­bi­tion is so big and I want to have a nice feel­ing af­ter games, be tired and go home and think ‘oh, you did a good job’.” – Reuters
