Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has hit out at Sir Alex Ferguson. He says the legendary boss, who celebrated 25 years in charge of United at the weekend, does not care about the Pole's Euro 2012 dream.
Kuszczak said: "I've become a slave to Manchester.
"I'm frustrated but I don't want to slander or criticise Ferguson. It's not my style. I've talked to Ferguson recently. I asked him to let me leave the club now, before the January transfer window.
"I told him I want to play and get back into the national team, because Euro 2012 is just around the corner - but it seems he doesn't care.
"The possibility of a two-month loan to Leeds United came up two weeks later. The club blocked it. It was a glimmer of hope for me. It would have reminded the Poland manager about me - but I didn't get the club's approval.
"Do they do it maliciously?
"I'm sad they behave like that.
"I have respect for Ferguson because, for me, he's a great manager, but I hope he will let me go in January."
