Barthez: American takeover convinced me about Man Utd exit

Fabien Barthez says when the Glazer family took over Manchester United he knew it was time to leave Old Trafford.

"Me, at this moment, I wasn't playing at my best level. I have always enjoyed life and I enjoyed everything at the same time."
