Ex-Manchester United keeper admits struggles to find new club

Old Trafford

Now trialing with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tomasz Kuszczak admits he's found it hard to find a new club since leaving Brighton & Hove Albion this summer.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak admits he’s been surprised that he’s not been able to find a new club since leaving Brighton & Hove Albion this summer.

Kuszczak, 32, has been training with Wolverhampton Wanderers this week in the hopes of securing a deal with the Championship club.

The ex-Poland international was recently linked with a shock move to Bayern Munich to serve as Manuel Neuer’s back-up following injuries to Pepe Reina and Tom Starke and, while he has held discussions with several clubs, finding work has been harder than anticipated.

‘I’ve had discussions with some clubs, but I’ve been surprised I haven’t managed to sign a contract somewhere,’ he told the Express & Star.

‘But I have to be prepared. I’m training every day and waiting for the chance, so when it comes I’m ready.

‘Physically, I feel really good and I’m training to stay fit so I’m ready.’

Kuszczak could well be in line for a deal at Molineux, however, with Wolves in search of an experienced back-up for Carl Ikeme.

Usual understudy Aaron McCarey has been ruled out until January following back surgery and manager Kenny Jackett admits that the veteran shot-stopper would be an appealing option.

‘If Carl got injured, it would be quite appealing to a number of people to go straight into the Wolves team,’ he said.

‘So we’d be getting a more experienced or better quality goalkeeper than a No.2.’
