Reds To Seal Kuszczak Deal

Reds To Seal Kuszczak Deal

Tomasz Kuszczak will make his loan move from West Bromwich Albion permanent on July 1.

The Polish keeper had joined United on a loan in August last year and performed acceptably when called upon during the season just past.

It was always intended that he would make his move permanent this summer but no doubt it's more important now that Ben Foster is out for a considerable time.

'Tomasz will be a Manchester United player for the next four years', chief executive David Gill said at a press conference ten months ago. 'He has come to us on loan for the first year, and then will join us permanently in July 2007."

With all his problems in dealing with crosses, Kuszczak is still a reliable deputy for Edwin van der Sar and helps to ease the pain of the loss of Ben Foster. He's had a solid season and I think the experience will make him better and more confident.

Good luck Tomasz!

Hey guys, if you were goalkeepers, would you sign for a club knowing full well that whatever happens, you'll be only second choice? (and now try to imagine you are professional keepers of Prem quality - of course I'd glady sign for United sitting on the bench right now :-)))

at least goalkeepers know they will have chances in the first team, as they carry on playing alot lonnger than outfield players and also know that when the no.1 is injured they will DEFINATELY PLAY. for this reason, i would probably choose a sub role at a big club than being no.1 at a small club!

But if you were not a United fan just a goalkeeper? Would you rather sit on the bench at Barcelona or play week in, week out for Aston Villa?

if the goalkeep supported the smaller team then i would expect him to go there but as i support man utd i would prefer to be a bench warmer. Tom needs to sort out dealing with crosses then he can challenge next season with foster injured.

hmmm.... thats a tough one. I suppose i would go to villa. I would be able to improve my game by playing first team football and it would give me a better chance playing for my country. Also if i play for villa and improve I could then sign for barce as the first team keeper

Good thinking mattweeden! rooneyisgod: as I support United I'd happily accept the position of kit man or dressing room cleaner :-))
