Fergie Hits Out At Ruud

Fergie Hits Out At Ruud

Ferguson has tried to reach Eriksson on a number of occasions since Saturday to speak United's failure to overcome Middlesbrough without Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford has put the pressure on that runners-up spot.

Even with strikers of the class of Louis Saha and Ruud van Nistelrooy in their line-up, United lacked the guile to grab the winner which would have all-but sealed an automatic place in next season's Champions League group stages.

Instead, United must now beat Charlton on Sunday to ensure they stave off the challenge of Liverpool, with van Nistelrooy hoping to atone for the penalty miss which brought a reaction from his manager which hardly suggested the pair are presently seeing eye-to-eye.

Ferguson: 'It was disappointing because we expected Ruud to score.

'But it was not a good penalty. He has missed probably half a dozen in total and that was a bad one.'

come on he is going through a lot. Confidence can do a lot and without it Ruud is not Ruud. Henry is not Henry. Even Ronaldinho is not. Strikers need to be confident to be able to perform. Competition is fine but the way Ruud has been put off in the second half of the season is just ridiculous. Scoring 2 winners in a row as a sub and you still don't get starting lineup. What more could he do? Playing second fiddle to Saha is putting Ruud down. Everyone agrees he is the best striker of the ball in the world. There is no better finisher in the world than him. Holland will do well in the world cup and I think he will be the top scorer in the world cup. I hope his football future is sorted out before world cup. Staying at United is not the best option for Ruud. May be AC Milan and then you will see the real Ruud. As you have already seen him at United. I am an United fan but the way the team is going, it doesn't suit Ruud's game. United depend on individuals to win the game. Which may work when Ronaldo and Rooney are on form. But then when they are not, they may loose to any team. United need a player with pace and good dribbling skills upfront. Ruud could only stay at United, and would be worth it for both parties if there was 1 good world class midfielder to provide service and another player like Scholes.
