Suggestions that Ruud van Nistelrooy is unhappy with life at Old Trafford as ‘mischief making’. Says who?

Van Nistelrooy has been left on the bench by Sir Alex Ferguson for United’s last four games and is again expected to be there again for Sunday’s Old Trafford encounter with Birmingham.

Inter Milan owner Massimo Moratti certainly put clubs on red alert by claiming he ‘knows Van Nistelrooy is not happy in Manchester’.

Manchester United chief executive David Gill: ‘Sir Alex and Carlos made their views known last week and I can only reiterate what they said. Ruud has a two-year contract with Manchester United and remains very much part of our long-term planning.

‘I saw what came out of Italy but as far as I am concerned, it is just mischief making.’
