Ruud Looking For What's Best For Him

Holland went crashing out of the World Cup last night in a bizarre match against Portugal. That means that Ruud van Nistelrooy can now return and have 'clear the air talks' with Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ruud sat the game out after being criticised and dropped by Marco van Basten, now he says: 'I must get away from the World Cup and deal with it, then I will think about my future. Maybe in this coming week we have to see what United do and if there are a lot of teams getting involved.'

Having looked a forlorn figure at the Carling Cup final when Ferguson dropped him to the bench, there has been constant speculation that Ruud will be moved on, with the likes of Real Madrid being linked, as well as a slightly more unlikely move to Tottenham Hotspur..

'Whatever happens will happen. I have to assess that and see what is best for me. There must be some kind of contact between the club and myself. If nothing happens I'll be at United next season.'

He also says he didn't agree but 'accepted and respected' Van Basten's decision to drop him last night adding 'I was happy that he came to me and told me and whether I agreed or not I had to take it and move on and focus on the game and maybe a great moment for me as a sub. He won't say anything about it and I wouldn't. It was a one-on-one and that's the way it should be.'

This is all bullsh.t it comes from an article released about 4am England time where a reporter I think from the Guardian relayed his thoughts as to where Ruud would end up, stating he was in decline and Spurs fiited the bill over someone like AC Milan.
