Man Utd boss Ferguson: Not easy dropping Kuszczak

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has paid tribute to Polish goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.

Kuszczak has been forced to stand aside since the return of United No1 Edwin van der Sar.

In his column for United Review, Ferguson declared: "Incidentally I must say that restoring Edwin to the team must not be taken as a reflection on Tomasz Kuszczak who hardly made a mistake in his run of 11 games.

"It was not easy dropping Tomasz but it was the right thing to do because Edwin’s experience behind a relatively new centre back pairing is such a big help."
