Charlton keeper Amos: A big world outside of Man Utd

Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Ben Amos says leaving Manchester United was the right decision for his career.

The keeper played seven times for United – once in the Premier League, five in the League Cup and once in the Champions League.

But after the legendary former manager retired in 2013, Amos never got a look-in under either David Moyes or Louis van Gaal.

Amos, now 30, is making his mark at Charlton – having played for ELEVEN different clubs.

And he told The Sun: “The big thing I've learned since leaving is there's a world outside Man United.

“I was going into proper men's football week in, week out. At United I had been getting a little taste of first-team football and then I'd be out.

“I'd sit and wait and wouldn't be allowed out on loan. It was difficult to get a flow of first-team games.

“So what I learned was the Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday grind of men's football."
