Ruud van Nistelrooy, let it lie

Ruud van Nistelrooy, let it lie

For goodness sake Ruud, let it lie.

Real Madrid's new striker Ruud van Nistelrooy says Sir Alex Ferguson stabbed him in the back following his £10.5million move from Old Trafford.

Van Nistelrooy said: 'The first three-quarters of last season went well for me but the final part is best forgotten. My situation with Sir Alex started to change and it became difficult for me and him to work together. I had previously had a marvellous relationship with him. But in February we played the Carling Cup final against Wigan and I remained on the bench for the full 90 minutes.'

Adding: 'To me this felt like a stab in the back.'

He also says that he wants to retire at Real Madrid, talking to AS he said: 'I will retire here. Every day I attempt to be a better player. I want to win the Champions League and many trophies. This is a completely new challenge. I have won four trophies with Manchester United, but I want more and Madrid has given me this opportunity. I feel like a kid of 20 years of age. At this moment in my career, Madrid is the best thing that has happened to me in my life.'
