Kanchelskis admits regrets over Man Utd exit

Andrei Kanchelskis admits he has some regrets over the way his time at Manchester United ended.

Kanchelskis's acrimonious exit in 1995 saw him go to Everton, Rangers, Fiorentina, Manchester City (on loan), Southampton, Saudi side Al-Hilal and then back to Russia for spells with Saturn Moscow Oblast and finally at Krylya Sovetov.

Now Sporting Director at Russian First Division side FC Nosta Novotroitsk, he told Manchester Evening News: "Maybe I could have played more for United and maybe I do have some regrets.

"But that's life. Its all in the past and all I really remember about United is that I had four great years at Old Trafford.

"They were wonderful times. The best of my career. The people at the club were very nice; there were great fans and a great atmosphere in the dressing room. United are still very much in my heart and I am a supporter now.

"It's great to be coming back to the city this weekend. It was a big surprise to me when I was invited to the Masters Grand Final to play for United and very exciting.

"I still play a bit of charity six-a-side football so I should be OK! I think Lee Sharpe and Denis Irwin are playing on Sunday so it will be great to team up with them again."
