Mikael Silvestre is reportedly seeking an exit from Old Trafford after being dropped for the upcoming Community Shield match against Chelsea.
Numerous sources are today suggesting that the French international is seeking his exit, after realising he will still be second string to Patrice Evra this season, or even thrird choice if heinze decides to stay.
Speaking to the News of the World, the 30 year old spoke of his anger at being left out of the FA Cup final in May, claiming how it was a huge suprise to him.
'Alex Ferguson knocked on my door at 11am on the morning of the game to tell me I wasn't playing.'
He went on to say how it made him feel, accusing Ferguson of 'dressing up' the situation.
'Can you imagine how that felt? He did his best to dress it up saying I hadn't played a lot in the run-up to the game, I was still coming back from injury and he wanted to keep me fresh.'
He concluded by saying how much of a shock it was to him, labelling the snub as a 'huge blow' to him.
'I didn't want to here it. I didn't expect to be dropped and it was a huge blow.'
To be honest, this latest news neither worrys or suprises me, ive been expecting for a while now that Silvestre was unhappy with the current situation, but can he really blame Fergie?
Now, ive never been Silvestres biggest fan, I simply dont think he is good enough for United, but i always accepted him as a United player because i thought he was happy in the knowledge that he was, and never will be first choice. However this latest news makes me question what Silvestre's role at the club will be from now on. If he does leave, Fergie will surely need to strenghten at left-back with Heinze also seemingly out the exit door.
