Atletico Madrid ace Forlan still in touch with Man Utd coaching staff

Atletico Madrid ace Diego Forlan admits he keeps in touch with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Forlan has enjoyed a stellar career since leaving Old Trafford.

He told manutd.com: "The gaffer sent me several texts during the World Cup finals. He offered support and encouragement, which I appreciated. He's always watching, he never misses anything.

"I also keep in touch with Mike Phelan, coach Rene [Meulensteen] and Martin, the manager's brother. Players drift apart so I don't have any contact with the players, but I still have contact with United people."
