Spanish Golden Boot Forlan: Why it didn't work at Man Utd

The Spanish Liga's new golden boot, Diego Forlan, has explained why it didn't happen for him at Manchester United.

The Atletico Madrid star said: "The competition was hard at Manchester, there was [Ruud] van Nistelrooy, [Dwight] Yorke, [Andy] Cole, [Ryan] Giggs, [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer.

"I only appeared for 10 minutes every time. That is why I moved to Villarreal, who were not the club they are today.

"I left United to revive my career and this challenge proved a good decision."

He said about his future: "I am not forced to leave Atletico, speculating is useless. I am very happy in there. If something comes, it will be studied."
