'Slave, my a***' – Former Manchester United goalkeeper Kevin Pilkington hits out at Tomasz Kuszczak's claims

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Kevin Pilkington has hit back at Tomasz Kuszczak’s claims that he has become "a slave" to the club.

Kuszczak told the press that he was planning to leave after becoming the fourth-choice keeper at Old Trafford this season.

The Pole has not played a game this term and recently saw a two-month loan move to Leeds United blocked by the Old Trafford hierarchy, and claimed that Sir Alex Ferguson did not care about his situation.

But Pilkington is unhappy with Kuszczak’s comments and believes that he only has himself to blame for his current situation and should think himself lucky to be in the position he is in. 

Pilkington took to his Twitter account to say: “Embarrassing statement from kuszczak! Slave my a***. 1 he has had chances to impress. 2 he's on a very good wage. Should think himself lucky.”
