'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ruud On Painful Reds End

Former Manchester United striker (sorry, just wanted to see what that looked like in print) and Real Madrid's latest signing has admitted his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson 'had ended which was very painful.'

The 30-year-old Dutch international was at pains to say 'It had nothing to do with the club or the fans. It was the relationship with the manager that broke. I thought it was best to leave.'

Having said he has now gone to the biggest club in the world, it looks like he is trying to make amends by saying:

'I had an incredible five years in Manchester and I will always remember my time there and the unconditional support from the fans. I never got to say goodbye to Ferguson but there is plenty of time for that. I owe him a lot and that is why it was so painful.'

He also admits that Ferguson 'did a lot' for him, especially waiting for him when he was injured at PSV 'But what happened, happened. A good relationship ended. It was very disappointing for me.'

Meanwhile, The Reds said on the official site: 'Manchester United would like to wish Ruud all the best at his new club and thank him for the great service he provided.'
