Ruud van Nistelrooy is eager to bury the hatchet with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The prolific Dutch striker was shipped out of Old Trafford to Real Madrid in the summer of 2006 after falling out with the Red Devils boss.
Van Nistelrooy, who is currently on the sidelines recovering from the second major knee injury of his career, admitted he was hurt by the manner of his departure from United.
And he is keen to meet up with the fiery Scot in a bid to put their past differences behind them.
Van Nistelrooy told the Sunday Mirror: "I'm so looking forward to seeing him again. I want to talk and make up, clear the air between us.
"After all this time I can't believe or understand what it was really all about. Why did it have to be such a big thing?
"I think we were both to blame. It just exploded between us.
"Because we had such a smashing relationship, I just though, 'What on earth are you doing to me?'
"I was so upset. As a professional player you never get so attached to our club or manager that a clash will hurt you that much.
"But in this case it did. It got very personal."
