Real Madrid's Van Nistelrooy: I was forced out of Man Utd

Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy says he was forced out of Manchester United.

"It was not only me leaving, it was the club wanting me to leave," he told CNN World Sport.

"They wanted me to leave because it wasn't working out between me and the manager. We couldn't change that, and myself and the club chose to move on without each other."
