Manchester United striker Louis Saha has angrily denied claims he cries off too early over his injuries.
"I had six pieces of cartilage in my knee. Was that psychological?
"It has happened that I train in the week then declare myself unfit for the weekend.
"My knee could hold up for 20 minutes during training but would never have done so with the much higher intensity of a 90-minute match.
"I have never refused to play. Each time I missed a match was because I could not play."
