Kuszczak: I think I am good enough.

Tomasz Kuszczak has reiterated that Manchester United only have to look as far as him to find a replacement for Edwin van der Sar. The Dutchman is currently suffering from flu and Kuszczak is standing in for the United number one. Van der Sar is also debating whether to retire from football at the end of the season.  There have been keepers linked with the club and that leaves Kuszczak unsure whether he will be able to step in or not.  He told the Manchester Evening News: "I know I have not got the biggest name in the world, and I do not want this to sound arrogant. I think I am good enough.  "I have talked to the boss a few times and he said we will see what happens at the end of the season.  "I know that in the meantime if I get a chance I have to play well because that is the only way I am going to impress him.  "If Sir Alex Ferguson decides I am not good enough, then I will look for another club.  "Everything is open now. I am realistic about my situation. It would not frighten me to take over as Edwin's successor. Why should it? I am not new here.  "If I play for this club long term I will be really happy because that has always been my dream. I came to Manchester to try to be a top goalkeeper for many years like my idol Peter Schmeichel."
