Ruud van Nistelrooy has confirmed he intends to stay at Manchester United.

Reports claim the Dutch striker is unhapppy with life at Old Trafford following a frustrating season plagued by injuries.

But Van Nistelrooy, 28, said: “There is no question I want to stay here, I’m committed to United.

“It wasn’t my best season – I know that myself, but this is where I want to be, it’s the most important thing for me.”

Van Nistelrooy scored just six Premiership goals and missed three months of the season due to an Achilles injury.

“I was in the best form of my life but I was rushed back too quickly and now I’m struggling and it’s a bit of a disappointment.

“For me it has been a season of injuries. I only played 27 games but I scored 16 goals and if you look at it like that, it’s not too bad.

“But at clubs like Manchester United you are pushed to do an impossible number of games and for a player it’s becoming physically impossible without rest.

“The injuries spoilt my season because I couldn’t give what I usually can,” added Van Nistelrooy who will finish his season in Holland’s World Cup qualifier against Finland in Rotterdam.

“After we play Finland on Wendesday I have two weeks off but it’s not enough.

“The calendar is so full it’s getting ridiculous and it’s not good for players to keep their quality.”
