Tomasz Kuszczak has criticised Manchester United team-mate Edwin van der Sar for refusing to offer advice despite his requests for help and hinted at his frustration after failing to secure the number one spot at Old Trafford.
Kuszczak is in his fourth season at Old Trafford and still has ambitions in the game despite being unable to win a regular place in Sir Alex Ferguson’s team.
Kuszczak has sought out van der Sar for advice but says he has been offered few tips.
Poland international Kuszczak told the club’s television channel MUTV, according to the Times: “To be honest, I must say this and Edwin doesn’t like this too much for sure, but he doesn’t help me too much. I have told him a few times already to give me some more advice because he’s got more experience and got many more games under his belt.
“I say, ‘You have to give me something more’ because I like to know what I do wrong and like to watch other people. Doing that I can take some good from the advice I get. But I don’t know, maybe Edwin doesn’t like me. You’ll have to ask him.”
Kuszczak admitted he misses the exhilaration which comes with playing first-team football.
He said: “I’ve already waited three and a half years. I will wait longer but my ambition is so big and I want to have a nice feeling after games, be tired and go home and think, ‘Oh, you did a good job’.”
