TOMASZ Kuszczak would be advised to wear thermals next time he turns up for training after claiming he is being treated like a “slave” by Manchester United after a proposed loan move to Leeds was blocked.

The Poland international keeper insisted he did not wish to slander or criticise Sir Alex Ferguson but that won’t wash with the United chief who doesn’t take kindly to players – whatever their status – expressing their discontent in such a public manner.

Kuszack is hoping United will let him go in January – between now and then he can expect to be frozen out, good and proper.
